Xa Loi Pagoda
Contains Thich Quang Duc's heart
What we say:
During the Diem regime, this pagoda was attacked by ARVN soldiers and more than 400 monks were imprisoned, some of whom were killed.
This action helped to strengthen the opposition to the Diem regime and was crucial in the US decision to back the coup against him three months later.
Given the pagoda's proximity to other points of interest, this is worth a visit but we'd say it isn't worth a trek across town if you're not seeing some of the other points of interest.
