Saigon – the amazing floating temple!

We headed up the Saigon river on a tiny boat with an outboard motor. We were heading for the floating temple! It is renowned for its intricate artistic detail. Some might find it gaudy and garish but is is truly amazing. It is constructed so that it does appear to be floating.

It floated in the water among the waterweed but was really on a island.

It is a dragom temple constructed in the Chinese style – very heavily decorated and brightly coloured. Mosaics, reliefs, paintings, sculptures, caricatures, demons and dragons. It has it all.

I’m enjoying going through these photos from our amazing journeys around the world. We’ve been so incredibly privileged!!
