Known for its inner walls depicting the life of the Buddha, Xá Lợi Pagoda once served as the center of the opposition to the Diem government. In 1963, the sanctuary was ransacked and all of its 400 nuns and monks were placed under arrest. Later, the temple became the site of several self-immolations by monks opposed to the regime and the war with the U.S. Plan your Xá Lợi Pagoda visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ho Chi Minh City using our Ho Chi Minh City online road trip planner.
