Den Hung Temple: A Temple of Serene Environs

Within the vicinity of Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens lies the Den Hung Temple. This temple is said to be dedicated to the ancestors of Hung Vuong, the founding King of Vietnam.

Its surroundings is a tranquil greenery which added to the feel of sacredness of the place. The temple was built in Vietnamese architectural style in which the passage of time added to its luring ambiance.

I had a good walk in this temple complex. It is nice to unwind there on weekends with family and friends. It provides a foretaste of the beautiful landscape inside the Saigon Zoo.
