One of my favorite vietnamese pagodas. Very tranquil. You will see some worshipers praying and some monks too. The place where you can watch some daily religious ceremonies.

We visited the temple on a Monday morning 11 am. Place was fairly quiet, few worshippers. Enjoyed the peace, tranquility and atmosphere.
