"Tao Dan Park" Parks Tip by kokoryko
Parks, Ho Chi Minh City: 21 reviews and 45 photos
To the South West of the reunification palace is a big garden where it is agreeable to forget for a while the traffic noise, to walk under huge trees and discover small temples in the green surroundings and some ?interesting? modern statues.
In the middle of the park is this little Hindu style temple: Tháp Chăm trong công viên Tao Đàn (first picture); this little red brick construction under the lush vegetation reminds me shrines of Bali. . . . . as well as does this Shiva with her high cap on this small altar (picture 2).
Another temple, Den Tho - Vua Hung (picture 3), Buddhist, this time, may be worth a visit, as it is quiet here, and the manicured garden and the flowered alleys are just inviting to do so!
When you observe the workers in the garden, it is not a surprise, the gardens look really ?manicured?! (picture 4).
And it is interesting to think how in the wet climate of Vietnam, the gardeners manage to maintain a Mediterranean garden with lots of cactuses (picture 5); Walking there is just relaxing and a feast for the eyes!
