Saigon Central Mosque has been around since 1935 and was originally built for the Indian Muslim community living in Ho Chi Minh City. Located just off the famous shopping street of Dong Khoi, you will find this clean and well-maintained mosque with its four minarets, and colourful exterior.
The mosque is one of the twelve mosques in Ho Chi Minh City and provides worshipers with a quiet and serene place to practice their beliefs. With a shaded veranda and cold stone tiled floor it gives you the chance to sit down in peace. If you would like to know more about the Muslim community in Vietnam or their beliefs in general then a visit will give you a good impression. The Saigon Central Mosque is also referred to as the Masjid Muselman or Dong Du Mosque.
Around the mosque you find many small street vendors selling Halal food, such as snacks made of bread and biscuits. Across the street you will find a Vietnamese Halal restaurant in where you can have a nice tasty meal for lunch or dinner. To visit the mosque you must remember to take your shoes off and wear appropriate clothing. This means that you should not wear short pants or clothing that exposes too much skin, and you should also cover your shoulders and chest.
