Vinh Trang Pagoda is located on Nguyen Trung Truc Street, My Tho City, Tien Giang Province. This is considered one of the most ancient and largest pagodas in the West. During Tet, this ancient pagoda usually welcomes more than tens of thousands of visitors.

At this destination, you can be submerged in the beautiful Vietnamese traditions during the Tet holiday. In the first days of the year (according to the Lunar calendar), the locals come to the temple to pray in the new year as a long-lasting custom. They offer incense and ask the gods to grant them their wishes of luck and fortune.

The ancient temple attracts many tourists, both local and abroad, because of its ancient features. The architect combines the beauty of Asian and European architecture. Window frames, hallways, and domes are built according to luxurious and noble Western architecture. Meanwhile, the worship architecture inside the pagoda bears bold Vietnamese traditions.

Exploring the pagoda will bring you more knowledge and appreciation of Vietnamese culture in the Mekong Delta. The interior space is built in the shape of the letter "Quoc" (country) with four compartments, namely the front hall, main hall, ancestral house, and back house.
