We went there today and I really liked the atmosphere. It’s a bit hidden but I really recommend to visit it. I found it very impressive!

Not especially impressive, but still nice and big considering it's inside the city centre. A very nice lady borrowed us her typical vests for the cerimony so we could go in just about when the religious service was about to begin.

Nice Pagoda but currently undergoing renovations. Good for a quick visit and get some photos. Bit out the way but not hard to find.

We walked here, comfortable walking distance from centre of Ho Chi Minh City but not worth the effort at present. There are major renovations in progress and the place looks like it desperately needs it. Look forward to seeing the temple on our next visit...More

This is a short trek from the central area but easy enough to reach on foot. The effort isn't really worth it though as there's not too much to see in this small, run down pagoda. Needs some proper paint and attention.

The temple has a few sections, including the pagoda, and some outdoor areas. The upper floors of the pagoda is accessible after a voluntary donation. You have to take your shoes off to enter, but it is quite dirty upstairs. It is about 4 floors...More

The temple is a nice and well preserved relic of hcm.. but it seems to be a bit forgotten . There was a man here the day I visited who was just gazing as people walked in ..not sure if he was the caretaker ....More

This temple is smaller than other ones in HCM (in my opinion). Also there are not so many tourists. So you can enjoy tranquil atmosphere. The tower is somewhat tall and other architectures and designs are interesting too.

We arrived just before noon to ‘peer’ through window as closed . If this is good as it gets its not worth it.
