Mariamman Hindu Temple

Worth a quick peak

What we say: 3 stars

This small Hindu temple is frequented by both Saigon's tiny Hindu population along with resident Vietnamese.

If it were not for the beggars hassling you throughout your visit, it would be quite an enjoyable place — it's believed the temple has the power to heal the ill. After 1975 the Vietnamese government converted it into a factory for making joss sticks, but it's now used solely for worship.

This popular spot boasts ornate carvings and various shrines and is located only three blocks west of Ben Thanh market on Truong Dinh Street - it is certainly worth a look in.
