Giac Lam Pagoda
The oldest and most original pagoda in Ho Chi Minh
What we say:
People often come here to pray for sick and recently deceased relatives, hence the countless array of pictures inside the main building.
Three rooms make up the complex: a dining room, the 'altars of patriarchs' and the main hall — the latter housing an impressive shrine.
A garden skirts the front of the site and contains a marble Buddha statue.
Any taxi or xe om will know the temple — it's best to go this way as the pagoda is some way from the city centre.
