Saigon Central Mosque

The blue and white mosque is “a quiet oasis is the busy business district of Saigon,” says Beautiful Mosque. Constructed in the 1930s by South Indian Muslims, the mosque is “one of around a dozen that serve the city’s Muslims and it stands on the site of an earlier mosque … home to four minarets, tall spires typical of Indo-Islamic mosques, they’re not used for the call to prayer. It’s a “very peaceful place to go to understand the Muslim culture in Vietnam,” writes Saigon Muslim Tours. “The shaded verandah and cool stone floors make it an ideal place to sit, read or even nap in the heat of the day.”
