Quoc Tu PagodaBa thang Hai & Tran Minh Quyen Streets | District 10, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The Quoc Tu Pagoda is a located in District 10. This relatively new (built in 1963) pagoda is easily spotted when cruising down the busy street of 3 Thang 2. At seven stories tall, it's pretty hard to miss.
It's also a shame to miss, as the pagoda is full of colorful, oversized statues of religious figures which make for some fun viewing. If you're lucky enough to be around on the first of fifteenth of the month, the pagoda opens up the third and seventh floors of the pagoda. That is if you're feeling up to the climb... Visitors who are less inclined to hike and/or are not visiting on those days are still invited to hike up to the second floor to visit a stunning and dreamlike shrine made up of countless miniature Buddhas floating against a cloudy sky mural.
