Ha Chuong Hoi Quan Pagoda
Another one for the sea goddess
What we say:
Another Fujian temple dedicated to the goddess of the sea Thien Hau, Ha Chuong Pagoda is one of several pagodas packed into Saigon's Cholon district.
Along with Thien Hau Pagoda and Quan Am Pagoda, worshippers here come to give offerings to the lady of the sea, Thien Hau.
The centrepieces of the pagoda are four ornately designed pillars decorated with dragons. The pillars are unique as they were crafted in China, then brought to the temple by boat.
Not the most unique pagoda in Cholon, it's worth a quick visit if you're touring the area.
