I went here because I saw photos. Many of the things that were impressive in the photos are now gone. The main structures however, are still intact and impressive themselves. You can also get the chance to see authentic prayer chants. Make sure to take your shoes off before entering.

Unfortunately when we went to visit this place there was a certain Francois Hollande, the French President, was visiting and it wasn't accessible to the public for the duration of his visit. There was a lot of security around and you couldn't really get close to the temple. From the outside it looks impressive and big and I am sure... More

It is working Buddhist temple. It is very interesting to come and sit, then feel the atmosphere when local Buddhist are praying.

This temple locates by the road , Nam Ky Khoi Nghia St., from the airport to the district 1. Bus No is 7, 152, 4 and 3. The temple was opened by Vietnamese monk who learned in Japan, opened around 1870. It is worth to see.
