"Vinh Nghiem temple" Temples Tip by dinhyen

Temples, Ho Chi Minh City: 17 reviews and 39 photos


Saigon has many Buddhist temples. These aren't just tourist attractions; the locals actively worship there weekly and on holidays. Buddhist temples are remarkable for their openness; anyone can enter as long as you observe the customs, such as taking off your shoes at the door and refraining from taking flash pictures during ceremonies! There are donation boxes for the faithful, which you may or may not contribute to. Many temples are several stories high, reaching toward the heavens.
