The Hainan Tin Hau Temple (CHÙA BÀ HẢI NAM) in District 5 of Ho Chi Minh City is very historic, although it is located in the center of the modern city. The preservation is good. There are often dragon and lion dances,
This is a Chinese temple located in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. If you are traveling in Ho Chi Minh City, you can take a quick tour. An interesting Chinese temple with a long history, we saw a couple taking wedding photos. After lunch, the first object we visited was Tianhou Temple. Tianhou Temple is located in the Chinatown area and has a unique and complex artistic architectural design. The design itself is a combination of traditional Chinese architectural design and traditional Vietnamese architectural design. Here, visitors can pray to the gods. Like most temples in Vietnam, incense and candles are charged. Visitors can hang handwritten prayer notes (of course, there is also a fee for buying paper). Interestingly, in addition to Vietnamese, most employees working in temples can also speak Chinese. Those who can speak Chinese have a great advantage. However, none of them speak English.
Temple of the Queen of Heaven is a very large palace complex, here is also quite a lot of displays, the Queen of Heaven is also a choice of history of this place, many of the buildings are very unique oh, very harmonious oh.
It feels great to see this ancient temple being actively used by the community. We are very happy to see this building and its charming decoration. This is not a place where I spend a lot of time, but it is definitely worth a visit. Chinese style.
This Chua Ba Thien Hau is one of the oldest Taoist Temple in town which was built in 1760 and is dedicated to the Godness of Seafarers (believed to be very sacred towards boats in danger).
There are also amazing sculptures of traditional Chinese folks on the roof, paintings or figures, making it also a place for traditional Chinese arts display.However, the time when I visited was in Lunar New Year, massive tourists and models for photograph have disrupted the peaceful image of the temple, with a lot of incense smoke as a consequence should require stronger act.
As soon as you walked into the Tianhou Temple, you can see that there are bunches of incense hanging in the patio beside the hall. The breeze is blowing, the bunches of incense are swaying with the wind, and the cigarettes are curled up and drifting slowly. Time is at this moment. The thoughts that were pulling people became trance. Walking into the main hall, there are many incense sticks hanging high under the ceiling, growing in circles from top to bottom. On the side of the main hall, the incense is being sold hot. Visitors can write their names on the red paper and paste them on the bottom of the incense. Then someone will hang the incense for you. The high-hanging incense and the light smoke carrying people's blessings and prayers float all the way to the sky...
There are incenses in the Tin Hau Temple for purchase at 5000 VND. If you are not ready to worship, you can also visit the buildings. But the address on TA is wrong, you have to be optimistic about the location on Google, or take a taxi. Worth seeing!
Every time you come to Tin Hau Temple, you will make donations. After you arrive, you can see the tour guide personally donate incense, and some group members also take the opportunity to make incense. The wooden building of Tin Hau Temple has gone through many years, but it is still very well preserved. I believe there are many believers who visit it. Chinese style.
