Mariamman Hindu Temple is located near the Reunification Palace. Built in the 19th century by traders from India, the temple plays a key role in Saigon’s Hindu community. The colorful temple is decorated with many different statues to various gods and goddesses important to the Hindu faithful. The ornate decorations are quite interesting and provide a strong contrast with the surrounding buildings. Certainly if you are in central Saigon, this is an attraction worth visiting.
