Thien Hau Temple

Thien Hau Temple
Thien Hau Temple

Located in the dead center of Cho Lon, the Chinatown of Ho Chi Minh City, the Thien Hau Pagoda is a Chinese-style temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Thien Hau, or Lady of the sea. Originally constructed in 1760, it has undergone restorations on a regular schedule. Given that it’s a regularly used temple by locals, there will be a flow of smoke and fragrances. If you’re allergic or sensitive, you may want to consider staying away from the main altar area. The highlight of the temple for the Vietcetera team are the dioramas on the pagoda’s roofline. If you find yourself in Chinatown, you might as well make the temple as part of your visit to Ho Chi Minh City.

Travel tips for the Thien Hau Temple
The nearest attraction near the temple is Binh Thay Market, also in the Chinatown area. The Cho Lon area is quite large, before 1931 it used to be a separate city from Saigon. As the cities grew and borders merged, the government brought the two cities together.
