20/50.-Saigon, Mariaman Hindu Temple


The Mariaman Hindu Temple is not far from the Reunification Palace, in District 1. this is a rather small temple, but it is a curious sight. Inside the temple you can see several hindu deities in the surrounding walls. A big statue of Mariamman is flanked by Maduriveeran and Pechiamman at the center of the temple.

There used to be more Hindu temples in Saigon, but currently it remains only this one. There are not more than a hundred Tamil Hindus in Ho Chi Minh, but it is not difficult to see Vietnamese followers of this religion burning incense sticks and prostrating themselves in front of their deities.
