Vietnam - Vung Tau - Whale Temple

Our next stop, we visited a whale temple. According to Legend, the whales protect the ships and their crews.

Take note of the vendor in yellow shirt and wearing a helmet.

These vendors would follow us from one attraction to the next and when we return to our hotel, they would wait outside the hotel. When we left the hotel for lunch, the vendors would ride on their motorbikes and followed us to the restuarants and continued selling their wares to us....so funny. These happen almost everyday in Vietnam when we were there. So you can see the familar faces of the vendors whereever you go.

Inside the temple are skeletons of whales that were washed ashore.

A Whale temple! Very interesting. The legend justifies.
