Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda
What we say:
Located in Saigon's Chinatown district of Cholon, Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda is a small temple built by the Fujian Community in 1839.
Also known as Tam Son Temple, it is dedicated to Me Sanh, the Goddess of Fertility, making the pagoda a favourite of Vietnamese women praying for children.
You'll see the majority of these women praying, and making offerings, to the altar in the back of the temple.
One of the older pagodas in the city, it has been changed little and retains much of its 19th century design. While it is less awe-inspiring than other pagodas in the area, it is still worth a quick visit.
