Sri Thendayyutthapani Temple Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

One of a number of Hindu temples catering for Vietnam's Indian minority, this is a charming and incongruous place to find in downtown Ho Chi Minh City. The main deity is Thendayyutthapani, also known as Lord Moruga but there are also shrines for Lord Shiva and Lord Krishna. Lavish murals, paintings of historical figures such as Nehru and Gandhi and multi coloured baubles adorn the ceiling. Make sure you go up the stairs to the roof terrace, where you have a good view of the surrounding streets, and can see some more statues of Hindu deities.
