Ong Temple Reviews
วัดจีนอยู่ติดแม่น้ำ และสวนสาธารณะ เดินจากที่พักไม่ไกล มีอายุเกิน100ปี เข้าไปกราบไหว้ขอพร เพื่อสิริมงคล more »The Chinese temple is located on the river and the park is a short walk away. He was over 100 years old to pray for luck.
在渡船頭河邊散步時其實很容易看到，外頭就寫著廣肇會館四個大字，香火鼎盛，一路到晚上都還開著讓人可以進去裏面拜拜. 不用門票，買包香1萬VND 想拜就拜，又或著沾仰也行.. more »It's easy to see when walking along the ferry, with four big words on the outside, and the fire is in full swing, so that people can worship at night. Without a ticket, bao Xiang 1 VND want to worship, or worship also OK:
You could easily walk by it. It is almost nondescript from the outside as far temples go in Vietnam, but once inside the aesthetic charms and flourishes are unmissable. The smoke from the burning incense also gives an air of mystique to the place. This is no relic. It is an active temple; there were worshippers in prayer as tourists walked throughout. Very much worth a look.
Lovely little temple, worth a stop and look inside. If you have to use your camera inside, please do so with respect - this is a place of active worship.
