Location: 289 Hai Ba Trung, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City

Tan Dinh Church Saigon is a Romanian-style church in Ho Chi Minh City, where you can see intricate Gothic and Renaissance elements that have managed to survive Vietnam’s turbulent periods. Built in 1876 and spanning 60 metres in height, it’s widely regarded as the second biggest church in Ho Chi Minh City, after Notre Dame Cathedral. Nearby the gate are two massive bell towers, while the bright pink church is fitted with three beautifully-decorated Italian marble altars. 

In 1877, Father Donatien Éveillard invited the Sisters of Saint-Paul de Chartres to set up an orphanage and boarding school beside the church, which had housed over 300 youths in the span of three years. A publishing house is then added to the cathedral grounds, where disadvantaged children were educated for the publishing trade. To honour his contributions to the local community, he was buried beneath the nave of Tan Dinh Church following his death in 1883.

Located on Hai Ba Trung Street in District 3, Tan Dinh Church Saigon is a 10-minute taxi ride from District 1. Whilst you’re exploring the area, we highly recommend stopping by at the nearby Tan Dinh Market to browse through an extensive collection of fabric, bags, clothing, and produce, as well as snack on inexpensive street food. The church is also close to Le Van Tam Park, were you can find plenty of carnival rides for children.
