Phuoc An Hoi Quan Pagoda, Ho Chi Minh City Overview

One of the most ornamental temples in Cholon, Phuoc An Hoi Quan Pagoda is a beautiful shrine dedicated to Chinese general Quan Cong. Built in 1902, the temple is surrounded by abundant greenery and features exquisite wood carvings on all altars, walls and columns. A burst of colour greets you as you enter the temple while Quan Cong's red horse faithfully stands on one side.

Another Cholon Pagoda, this is a must visit for many Vietnamese locals. It is almost ritual like to come to the pagoda before embarking on journeys or important travels. Upon entering, one can find Quan Cong a little to the left, seated atop his horse as two ceramic storks stand by his sides. Devotees make offerings to the Quan Cong statue, stroking the horse's mane and then finally ringing the bell hanging from its neck. Even before you enter, the temple is striking from the outside with its curved roof and intricate porcelain figurines perched atop the curves. Besides Quan Cong, the pagoda also serves as a place of worship for Ong Bon and Nam Ban Ngu Hanh. Built in 1902, even after over a century, you find the colours just as bright and gorgeous. With the usual red and gold of a pagoda and its typical incense filled aroma, the temple is also spotted with blues, greens and an unexpected purple of Quan Cong's face.
