Ba Thien Hau Temple, Ho Chi Minh City

View a prime example of 19th-century Chinese temple architecture at Ba Thien Hau Temple. This temple is frequented by a wide variety of worshippers and tourists. The site is dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau, who is said to be able to save people facing trouble out at sea. Take note of the ornate exterior roof, decorative lanterns, and wooden theater models. When you enter the temple, you will find a partially covered courtyard, altar, and burning incense. Plan my trip to Ho Chi Minh City with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
