Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda

Tam Son Hoi Quan is a quiet pagoda located on a small street. The interior is loaded with beautiful ornamental figures, so bring your camera. The temple was built in the 19th Century by the Fujian Congregation in Cho Lon, Saigon's Chinatown. You may wonder why most of the visitors to the temple are women. It is because the pagoda is dedicated to Me Sanh, or Mother Sanh, the fertility goddess. The women have come to the Tam Son Hoi Quan in hopes of conceiving a child.

Built by the Fujian Congregation of Saigon in 1839, Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda has thankfully retained its rich ornamentation. The Cho Lon-located pagoda is dedicated to Mother Sanh, the Goddess of Fertility, and is popular with women praying for conception. The worshippers congregate in front of Mother Sanh's altar at the back of the temple.

When you're in Cho Lon area in District 5, the Chinatown of Saigon, make sure to stop by the pagoda. You can read all our reviews about religious sights in Ho Chi Minh City: Temples and Pagodas.
