Chùa Phước Hải (Điện Ngọc Hoàng), Ho Chi Minh City Reviews
Interesting. It's not what you usually see in temples in other Asian countries. The theme inside is more darker than the usual temples. A lot are praying inside. Kinda far from the city center and no other places to go after unless you take uber.
Beautiful temple with lots of great sculptures. The sculptures makes the building unique contrasted with the red painting and also there's a beautiful pagoda too here. Overall this place is good for photography if you interested in photography and of course instagramable. Please keep the respect before entering this temple, and oh yes, there's lotus pot here.
Nice Pagoda but a little far away from the downtown area. Some of the pedestrian crossings were closed so we had to walk several extra blocks to be able to access it. It was interesting, 50% locals and 50% tourists inside, we spent about 20'.
This temple is a phuoc(福, Lucky) Hai(海, Sea) Chua(寺, temple). So this temple has a meaning, 'Lucky from Sea' But there is a signboard in front of main gate which is a chinese characters, 玉(Jade)皇(Emperer)殿(Hall). So you understand why it's name is jade emperor. But these chinese characters can not translate one by one. Original words is an '玉皇上帝(The first God in the sky who control everything)' This words comes from 'Taoism(道敎)'. That means that this temple is not budha temple when it built. Then I tryied to find some documents. ============================= This temple originally built in 1909 by Chinese immigrants. This Taoist temple now welcomes Buddhist worshipping and is incredibly atmospheric with incense smoke hanging heavy in the air. Intricate architecture, carvings, statues of Gods and Goddesses and Chinese characters create an exotic and timeless ambiance. ============================== Finally in my humble opinion, This is not good for tourists. Only Many native vietnam people are praying for their good fortune s in this temple. Maybe 'Thien Hau Pagoda' temple in the china town will be best temple for tourist. If you really want to know native vietnam people, Visit this temple.
The only Temple in Saigon that worship to Jade Emperor. This is a interesting place to visit. I was paid lot of interesting not to the main site, but in the left side section, where they description the penalties in the Hell by the nice carved wooden. This also the place for people come to pray to have baby if they don't have yet or for their children.
