Chua Vinh Trang

This pagoda near the town of My Tho was built in 1849. From this year, the pagoda was managed by Buddhist Priest Hue Dang from Giac Lam Pagoda in Saigon. He led people to refine the pagoda and named it Vinh Trang Pagoda. The pagoda consists of five buildings, two ornamental yards and 178 pillars. 
The architecture is a harmonious combination of Asian and European styles, creating the splendid, but simple features of this Buddhist pagoda. Inside the pagoda are many specious statues made of wood, among which there was a collection of 18 Buddhisattvas sculpted in 1907.
