One Pillar Pagoda

It was the place connected to Ho Chi Minh Museum. Even though nothing much to see, people said that couples who wanted a baby could pray at that pagoda.

It's a very simple pagoda, but kind of cute... A little taste of the type of buddhism you find in Vietnam...

This pagoda is advertised as an amazing attraction but in our view, it was a little disappointing. There were queues of people trying to get up the steps but when they got to the top, they saw just a small altar/shrine and then turned round quickly and came back down again.

The pagoda is in the grounds of the Ho Chi Minh museum, so if you are going to the museum it is an easy walk to the Pagoda. This Pagoda is free to visit, but having been to many Pagodas this one is just average and if you are not going to the area where it is or the Ho... More
