Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda in Cholon (Ho Chi Minh City)

The 19th century temple is a guildhall named after Sanshan (Three Mountains) and is dedicated to Me Sanh – also Mother Sanh. She is the Goddess of Fertility and is popular with women praying for conception. Thien Hau – the goddess for seafarers is also revered within the main shrine. When I visited the little pagoda (January 2015) in a small street near the Nguyen Tai, renovation work were done inside the temple. Nevertheless worshippers congregated in front of Mother Sanh´s altar at the back of the temple.
