  • This pagoda is what a new Khmer temple looks like with a local group of worshippers, a departure if you're only familiar with the crumbling antiquities of Angkor.

Great building from chinese people, stayed in one of the most crowded street in Can Tho but when you came into this pagoda, so quite, but very formal, I don't know how to describe exactly about this place, you just come and feel, but I can say, this is good place to come if you come to Can Tho.

Несмотря на жару, в пагоде было прохладно. Это место, где можно прикоснуться к быту монахов - прямо перед гостями они устраивают трапезу и ведут свою обыденую жизнь.

La Pagoda dell'Imperatore di Giada è molto affascinante direi la più bela della città. Difficile da trovare perche è molto nascosta in un vicolo traversale della Dien Bien Phu nell distretto 1.Aperto dalle 6-18.Qui trovi l'atmosfera del Vietnam che non cè più con tutti e fedeli che pregano e chiedono grazie.Consiglio di raggiungere in taxi cosi si evita un ora di ricerca(1 dollaro dal centro)
