Giac Lam Pagoda

The oldest and most original pagoda in Ho Chi Minh

What we say: 3.5 stars

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.
