Xa Loi Pagoda
The Xa Loi Pagoda is the largest in Ho Chi Minh City. It was built in 1956 and was said to contain ‘Xa Loi’ – sacred bones or rather fragments of them from The Buddha.
The pagoda was the center of political protest in the 1960s, when monks and nuns inside were attacked, resulting in the deaths of thousands of Buddhists.
