Built in 1928, Phap Hoa Pagoda in HCMC’s District 3 exemplifies traditional Vietnamese architectural style.

The pagoda serves as a place of study and chanting for monks, nuns, and Buddhists and is a must-visit destination for tourists seeking to admire its architectural beauty, experience its peaceful and sacred atmosphere, and learn about Vietnamese culture and religion. The pagoda also hosts a wide range of charity and cultural activities for the community.

On the evening of May 19, thousands of people and Buddhists flocked to Phap Hoa Pagoda to participate in the ceremony of dropping flower garlands and colorful lanterns onto the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal to celebrate Buddha’s birthday, praying for peace and prosperity. This event is considered the largest flower-dropping festival in HCMC.
