Khanh Van Nam Vien Pagoda
A Taoist pagoda
What we say:
The pagoda was built in the early 1940s by Cantonese immigrants and is one of the few, if not only, Taoist pagodas in the city. The focal point here is a statue of Laoste, one of the three pure ones in Taoist culture, who has a halo made from florescent lights.
Although not the most historic of temples, the pagoda should be commended for its philanthropic efforts, which include a home for the elderly and a next door clinic, offering herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments free of charge.
