Central Mosque – JAMIA AL MUSLIMIN (Dong Du Mosque) in Ho Chi Minh City
Saigon Central Mosque is one of the 12 mosques in Ho Chi Minh City. The Central Mosque was built in 1935.
It was originally constructed for worshipers from southern India then resident in Saigon, but now Muslims from all over the world would come here to worship. This mosque is usually crowded on Fridays. This a very peaceful place to go to understand the Muslim culture in Vietnam. The shaded verandah and cool stone floors make it an ideal place to sit, read or even nap in the heat of the day.
As with most mosques, an important tip here is to remember to take your shoes off before entering the mosque and dress conservatively and decently if you wish to enter.
Furthermore you can also eat halal food that is readily available right outside the mosque. Just outside the mosque there are people selling halal food like bread and biscuits. Just across the road there is a halal restaurant that serves Vietnamese halal food as well.
