Jade Emperor Pagoda in Ho Chi Minh City

Location : 73 Mai Thi Luu Street, district 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Built in 1909 by the Cantonese immigrants, Jade Emperor Pagoda or Chua Ngoc Hoang or Phuoc Hai Tu is one the most attractive destinations for tourist in Ho Chi Minh City. It is also known as the Tortoise pagoda.

Taoist, Buddhist and other ethnic mythical stories from various cultures are carved in the walls of the pagodas. The Figure that dominates the main hall is the statue of the Jade Emperor who is believed to the “god of the heavens”. It is the emperor who decides who will be allowed entry in to the heavens and who will be refused. Heading to the left is an anteroom, which houses the idol of Kim Hua, a goddess of fertility. The King of Hell occupies another nook and is accompanied by his sundry minions. You can also see many elaborate carvings modify the ten levels of hel and the Chinese’s equivalent of the apocalypse. In addition, there are giant statues made of reinforced papier mache depict various figures from ancient Taoist and Buddhist mythology.
