We really liked the Xa Loi Pagoda also known as the Temple of the Buddha's Relic. It looks amazing both from the outside and from the inside. The thing we liked the most was the high tower pagodas. The other great thing is that this place is not touristy, so it is kind of the hidden gem of Ho Chi Minh city.
The austere, 1956-built complex is unspectacular, its most striking component a tall tower whose unlovely beige blocks lend it a drabness even six tiers of Oriental roofs can’t quite dispel. The main sanctuary, accessed by a dual staircase (men scale the left-hand flight, women the right), is similarly dull: beyond a vast joss-stick urn inventively decorated with marbles and shards of broken china, it’s a lofty hall featuring a huge gilt Buddha and fourteen murals that narrate his life.
The feeling of Vietnamese temples is different from that of domestic temples. There is no strong incense in Vietnam.
Very good place, feel very good, special good, like this choice.
This is a Buddhist temple in China. The statues in the temple are very beautiful.
