Wat Phnom, Cambodia



Vĩnh Tràng Pagoda

Vĩnh Tràng is a Buddhist temple in the Mekong Delta village of Mỹ Hóa. In the 1800s, the French coveted Mỹ Hóa because of its strategic location between the Mekong River and Old Saigon — and for that same reason, this beautiful area was the focal point of countless military campaigns during the Vietnam War.
