Pagode Quan Am (Chua Quan Am)

Os viajantes podem entrar no Pagode Quan Am (Chùa Quan Âm), um charmoso pagode budista de estilo chinês do século 19, por meio de uma portaria ornamentada. Isso leva a um pátio impressionante e vários altares que constituem um dos pagodes mais populares de Ho Chi Minh.

Os visitantes encontrarão obras de arte com cores brilhantes que homenageiam Thien Hau e Manjusri, decorando os altares e corredores de Quan Am. E embora os viajantes concordem que o pagode tradicional é a atração principal, um jardim próximo completo com um tranquilo lago refletindo, paisagens rochosas e um pavilhão coberto oferece uma oportunidade igualmente impressionante de explorar.

The basics

The Quan Am Pagoda was built in the early 19th century by Fujian Chinese. It’s very ornately and colorfully decorated, with ceramic tiles covering the ceilings showing scenes from Chinese stories. While it’s Chinese in style, it is a place of worship for both Vietnamese and Chinese Buddhists, and has elements of Taoism and folk religion. The temple consists of a couple of altar rooms, a courtyard, and a garden with a pond and fountain. As at most temples in Vietnam, the atmosphere is thick with fragrant incense smoke that comes from sticks and enormous coils hanging from the ceiling. Most visitors come to the Quan Am Pagoda while exploring the Cholon neighborhood. Some guided tours of HCMC include Cholon and the Quan Am Pagoda.
