At the end of the 17th century, Saigon was a district in Gia Dinh province. Through many changes, Saigon became the center of the new land, known to the world as the "Pearl of the Far East". Saigon is a crossroads city because it is home to many ethnic groups, center of the regional and world wide trade routes. Following that is the continuous exchange of people and diverse cultures. For more than 100 years, Western tone is the dominant tone in modern society, but the new cultural adaptation of indigenous generations is quite different. The reactions from that reality have arisen nationalist-oriented movements. The work of understanding traditional heritage in Gia Dinh - Saigon, from the fields of belief - spirituality, literature - art to customs - practices encountered obstacles and lack of relevant resources.
