HCMC – Chinese immigrants began to settle in the area of formerly Gia Dinh, which includes today’s Saigon, in the late 17th century. They set up their own communities in what is now districts 5, 6,10 and 11 of HCMC.
As part of the Chinese culture here, pagodas are among their most sacred precincts. Some pagodas can be considered outstanding examples of Chinese architectural structures in town.
The following are photos of four of the most well-known Chinese pagodas in District 5—Van Phat Pagoda, Thien Hau Pagoda, Ong Pagoda and Quan Am Pagoda.
