Built in the 1940s, the stunning Bửu Long Pagoda was once named by National Geographics among the Top 20 Buddhist Pagodas in the world.

For us, the beauty of this temple from the Theravada Buddhist branch is definitely worth the 30 minute we drove & 1 hour walk we took within its compound. We're saying that it's a Saigon must-go spot for touristas staying for more than 4-5 days in this bustling city.

PRO TIP: Come here on weekdays to avoid the crowd. Please note that the main temple closes at around lunch time

Well worth the trip 20km out of the city to District 9. Saigon's biggest temple, is different to most Vietnamese temples, with architecture usually found in Thailand. The gardens and ponds are wonderful to explore, finding stupas and other monuments.
Only the avid temple tourists, venture out so far , so usually not busy, but that might change once the new metro starts early 2024 .

Very beautiful pagoda. It is located near Dong Nai river. I visited about noon. So I couldn’t enter the inside. It seems that you can go inside the pagoda in the early morning and evening. Anyway please visit here for one of your good memories in HCMC.

A beautifully constructed pagoda dedicated to Buddhist worship situated at the fringe of Ho Chi Minh City. It is a a fairly large ground and is covered is extensive vegetations presenting a calm and tranquil environment for a stroll in the evening. It is also picturesque and good for instagrammers. There is a cafe situated within that serves Phô. We did not get to try but certainly looked quite delicious.

❌Scam alert❌ Don't park near the road, the restaurant/coffee shop owners will try to aggressively usher you in and then overcharge you. Drive past them, 20m upward towards the temple. There's parking available.

It's a lovely temple and worth the visit.

Such a beautiful place for deep breath! It looks like Thai pagoda and very impressive. There are many trees around and you can enjoy walking around and feel very peaceful in mind.

Its a bit far from the city center but the visit was worth it. I loved that there were snacks available just outside the pagoda. A charming ice cream vendor sold us very nice ice cream perfect for the hot afternoon.

Got to know this place from the infamous duo, shipped away. Amazing place..mostly because not a lot of tourist here 😂 It has similar design as Thai/Burmese temple, the only difference is that they have a great garden throughout the area. It's well maintaned and beautiful, which you don't see often around temples.

Located about 30 minutes away by cab from Ho Chi Minh city, the Buu Long Pagoda is a must visit for anyone who loves the quiet serenity of natural surroundings and beautiful architecture and carvings of Buddhist temples. We booked a cab from HCMC and asked the cab driver if he would wait at the parking lot for our return trip (as the weather was inclement that day, and the pagoda was located in a relatively remote area), which he kindly agreed to do; so we didn't have to worry about how we would get back to the city. We spent over an hour marveling at the grand dagoba in gold and its surrounding companion dagobas, the various golden statues of Lord Buddha, the stupas dedicated to Sivali Maha Thero, and the founder monk of Buu Long Pagoda-Lord Ho Tong, and intricate carvings and statues of various mythical creatures and deities, and the lovely greenery surrounding it all. We worshipped at the main shrine hall and the Bodhi tree located towards the back of the compound and walked about leisurely taking in the peacefulness and tranquility of the environment. It's a beautiful and calm place, so please be respectful when you visit, and as quiet as possible.
Facilities available in the compound include resting places, spacious parking and toilets if needed.

A stupa masterpiece in Saigon suburb. Even you're not a Buddist, simply a great get-away from the chaotic vibrant Saigon.

Designed by by His Holiness Vien Minh, the pagoda practices Vipassana and worships holy relics of the Buddha in its Gotama Cetiya.

A stunning architecture located in a far-east area of HCMC.
nothing much inside the tower (all floor are spacious but not much of statues or paintings)

the view on top of the tower is superb

This is a hidden gem that a lot of people do not know about. We went there in the morning (10am) and we were the only people there. There is no fee to get into the Pagoda which was super nice. You will only need above an hour or so to see everything so if you have a grab driver tell him to wait. Definitely worth going to unwind from the city and clear your mind for sure

I have first heard about this temple from the Instagram and ever since I’ve been wanting to visit there. It’s quite far from the city centre, more than 20 km from District 4 and took us nearly 45 mins by car to reach the temple. First time I’ve seen a Thai style temple in Vietnam and it has an elegant looking architecture. Visit before the noon as the temple close for lunch break. There are many shrines inside the temple.

Buu Long pagoda is beautiful and peaceful. A nice change from the city. It's a bit of a drive but if you have the time it's well worth the effort. It feels rural but the city is very near. Spectacular views are available from the top floors. There is a cafe available. I only had a juice so I don't know about the food.

The golden pagoda and Buu Long temple in the Indian style are acclaimed the most beautiful temples of the Southern Sect in South Vietnam. Looking in the distance, the golden top of the pagoda with the blue sky is amazing.

Buildings at Buu Long Pagoda were built on the ancient Buddhist culture. The construction of the pagoda is always being expanded. The pagoda was built based on the styles of pagodas in Thailand and India and the style of the pagodas in the Nguyen Dynasty (1802 - 1945). If you would like to explore the pagoda at close range, you’d need to take off your shoes and walk up the steps. Wind chimes at the top of the pagoda create refreshing sounds in wind.

One of the highlights there is the Lake Hangetsu in the middle of which an artificial fountain stands. There is water pouring out of the mouths of the stone dragons. You can admire the bird’s eye views of District 9 from the top. A vegetarian restaurant in the temple features Vietnamese vegetarian dishes. If interested, you can try it.
