The Cholon area of Ho Chi Minh City is home to many overseas Chinese settlements, giving it the appearance of a Chinatown. Where people gather, some facilities serve as spiritual centers, and several Chinese temples have been built in the Cholon area. The Ba Thien Hau Temple, where the photo was taken, is the oldest Taoist temple in the area.

A large incense burner was placed on the temple grounds, and many incense sticks were placed inside. Incense sticks used in Vietnam are much longer than those used in Japan. Smoke was rising from the incense burner. In the silence of the temple, the only thing moving was the smoke from the incense sticks.
