Emperor Jade Pagoda, Ho Chi Minh City

See the Ho Chi Minh City Guide ›
73 Mai Thi Luu Street
Ho Chi Minh City
Vietnam's insider take:

The loveliest Chinese pagoda in Ho Chi Minh City, the Jade Emperor Pagoda was built in 1909. It's decorated with a riot of carvings, depicting scenes from Taoist, Buddhist, and ethnic myths. In the dim interior, worshippers bow to Buddha statues with neon halos. Particularly impressive are the main altar and the side panel's depiction of hell. The path leading to the temple door is usually lined with hawkers selling food, incense, flowers, and even tortoises scrabbling in water-filled plastic bowls (the building is also known as the Tortoise Pagoda).
