Van Thuy Tu Temple

Van Thuy Tu Temple, built in 1762, has a special claim to uniqueness: it is the final resting place of more than 100 whales, whose skeletons are on display, the largest being 22 meters long. Whales were believed by local fishermen to be helpful and benevolent animals, and whenever one became stranded on the beach, its body was taken to the temple, which is on Ngu Ong St (Fisherman St).
