Emperor Jade Pagoda, Ho Chi Minh City

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Stop by Emperor Jade Pagoda, a colorful temple honoring the supreme Taoist god. Built by the Chinese community in 1909, the temple features a large statue of the God of Heavens, with two assistants seated in the central hall taking numerous offerings. Light a candle or burn incense, and observe worshippers reading sutras and socializing in the tropical garden outside the pagoda. Visit the central pond to see the many resident tortoises, which you can feed. Famous for its intensely colored life-size figurines--considered among the finest in the city--the temple serves as a vital and popular religious center. You can plan Ho Chi Minh City trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
