Additional Information

Introduction

The Ho Chi Minh City Opera House, also known as the Saigon Theatre, is a European-style Gothic building. The exterior walls of the opera house have a variety of reliefs and patterns, which were built according to the same kind of French opera house at that time. They are very beautiful. At the top of the giant arch of the front of the opera house, there are two female angels with two wings behind them. The lower part of the arch is the shape of the two goddesses holding the door with both hands. The outer wall also has various gorgeous and beautiful reliefs, which are worth fine. Fine taste.
