Firstly, if you are a tourist - Vinh Nghiem Pagoda is better than Jade Emperor Pagoda. I have no idea why the other one is so popular with tourists, it's quite dirty & has many pigeons. Vinh Nghiem is very beautiful and spiritual. You can...More

In reviewing this as a tourist, not a worshipper, I must say that other than the fairly impressive central hall and grand exterior, there’s not much else to to see. Probably still worth seeing but don’t expect to expect more than 15 minutes here.

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.
