  Jade Emporer Pagoda
by Blatherwick

Built in 1909, the Jade Emperor Pagoda is one of the more colourful temples in Saigon. There and many elaborate carvings which depict the 10 levels of hell and the equivilent of 'judgement' day' in Chinese mythology. The are great statues made from reinforced papier mache that represent characters from Buddhist and Taoist traditions.

This place is definately worth a look. It has a very peaceful atmosphere to it most of the time and there is lots to take in.

Address: 73 Mai Thi Luu St, District 3
Directions: Go to 20 Dien Bien Phu and head half a block NW.
