Uncle Ho Temple

sights / Other

Lonely Planet review

The highly unusual (particularly in these southern parts) Uncle Ho Temple is dedicated, of course, to the late president Ho Chi Minh, and contains a shrine to Ho as well as a small museum displaying photos of his life. The temple was built in 1971, while the war was still in progress, and there’s a downed US aircraft on the grounds. The Uncle Ho Temple is at Long Duc commune, 5km north of Tra Vinh town.
