Thien Hau Temple

Address : 710 Nguyen Trai, Phuong 11, Quan 5

This gorgeous 19th-century temple is dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau and always attracts a mix of worshippers and visitors, who mingle beneath the large coils of incense suspended overhead. It is believed that Thien Hau can travel over the oceans on a mat and ride the clouds to save people in trouble on the high seas.

* A great pagoda temple in the centre of Saigon. Great place to spend a bit of time exploring. The different types and sizes of the incense throughout the temple gave it a mystical feeling. It was a very interesting and picturesque place to visit.
