Chùa Phước Hải (Điện Ngọc Hoàng), Ho Chi Minh City Reviews

  • A peaceful ancient Chinese Pagoda in Vietnam. A lot of trees, pigeons in front of the town! An interesting story, Local people believe that this is a sacred temple for whom wants to ask for children! The old Chinese style architecture is so traditional and beautiful! And in the center of the City so it’s just take a white to come here. It’s worth for travelers come to when stay in Saigon! So, let’s hide a bike, then go around. Well come to Saigon ❤️

  • Even though the local populace might be loath to admit it, this Vietnamese Pagoda has much of a Chinese feel to it. The three large smoldering joss sticks, positioned a few meters directly in front of the main entrance, reinforce this assessment. The interior is also a bit of a surprise. In keeping with the Buddhist following of the country, I was expecting to see an array of the Buddha’s images. Instead there was an odd mix of historical figurines and effigies adorning the walls and alcoves. This, as I’ve come to find in my travels throughout the region, is not entirely unexpected. As with Thailand, Laos and Cambodia Buddhism, in Vietnam, is infused with local folk religions. The figurines and effigies staring down at me from the walls were, no doubt, revered ancestors and saintly figures from the historical past. My assessment of the pagoda’s interior is confirmed when a local lady asks me “are you here for good luck for having a baby.” The temple, as I’d already guessed, has a lot to do with fertility rites. I’m further informed “many foreigners come here for good luck for having a baby.” In this regard this temple, for the locals, is an eclectic mix of a spirit house and religious site for worship. I am told that spirits, in Asia at least, are nothing to be feared. Unlike the West, and its interpretation of ghost’s, spirits here are generally viewed as a source of good. More merit makers arrive to pay homage to the ancestral spirits. The routine is always the same. After igniting a bundle of incense sticks the worshiper moves in front of his, or her, preferred deity for the day. The bundle of smoldering sticks is clasped between upturned palms and held high to the forehead. In a standing position prayers, or incantations, are spoken softly between forward bends in the direction of the deity. After a minimum of three forward bends (bows) the worshiper then plants the burning incense sticks in the large earthen ware pot set up to receive all the smoldering offerings. The turtle, or tortoise, is held high regard in Vietnam; it is a symbol of longevity. It may also be considered a symbol of virility due to its longevity. For this reason alone turtles, and tortoises, are a revered and protected animal in Vietnam. Paying homage to the turtle spirits, and any beings associated with them, will hopefully bring good fortune to those planning to have a family. More visitors arrive and light up fresh bundles of joss sticks to continue the ritual. After getting plenty of good shots inside the temple it was time to focus my attention back outside. When I arrived I noticed a large pond on the right hand side of the grounds. A quick peek over the edge revealed a swarm of small turtles flapping about on the dry bottom. I was intrigued to see what the story was. I stepped back outside and made my way across to the pond perimeter wall. The cement wall is approx. one meter high above ground level and the bottom of the pond is approximately two meters below. I look over and see the swarm of small turtles still flapping away. This time however, there’s also a man with a garden hose, squatting nearby, giving them a relieving spray of cool water in the midday heat. I’m at a loss as to why there should be mass of small turtles at the bottom of a dry pond. Even stranger is the white lettering that’s on the backs of many of them.

  • Amazing place with powerful energetic feelings! It seems like the place is charged with an ancient energy for many years, many people come and making wishes at this place. Great place to make wishes for good luck. Only 20.000 VND for incense sticks for praying, not more!

  • A nice place to find peace and tranquility. Even though I don't speak Vietnamese this is a place to pay respect. I didn't want to take too many pics for respect to the faithful followers of Buddhism.

  • This temple was built in 1909 by Chinese immigrants. Nowadays this temple becomes one of an amazing place in Saigon. Someone call this temple is Phuoc Hai Tu (means the Temple brings Luck from the Sea). But this temple has another name, Jade Emperor Hall, a King in Taoism.
