Nice to visit to get out of the hcmc chaos for an hour. The street seller's selying his wares at the door was a little annoying and disrespectful as it is a religious site...however, well worth the time taken to visit.

This is a nice little temple with a peaceful atmosphere. Definitely seen nicer ones but it’s nevertheless worth a visit. The temple is located in the middle of the city (close to Nguyen Hue Street). Enjoy!

I always try to visit and pay my respect to visit temples especially when I am away from home. This helps my journey of spirituality to be even greater and most important safer.

What a surprise find! Walking through the city we happened upon a temple which was obviously Hindu rather than the expected Buddhist. Full of people worshipping so we quietly walked through to admire the colourful statues and pictures. Worth stopping for 10 minutes of peace.

Very colorful, almost open air, peaceful, there are English plates, no one is helping, no entrance fee. i wish to have some English material about Hinduism since this is a good opportunity to present Hinduism to coming visitors.

You had to keep your shoes inside the temple which i find it to be strange. Or you can buy something from old lady vendors outside the temple and ask them to take care of your footware.
