A calm, quiet, oasis which was not busy the afternoon we visited. It is stunning in its simplicity and amazing testament to the architects and engineers of its time. Relocated in the fifteenth century, it has been standing on its present site since 1842. Great to see locals still using it as a place of worship.

Nice place to visit for a photo opportunity any time of the day. Be sure to buy a turtle from one of the ladies out front, make a wish, and set it free in west lake. There is a decent Viet resteraunt across the street as well that serves really good Cha Ca!

Definitely worth a look, beautiful Vietnamese culture, ornate alters in the temples right on the water. A good walk around the lake from the old quarter takes you through the real Hanoi.

Visited this as part of a hop, step and jump between temples and pagodas near the West Lake. By far the most attractive of those, with multiple Buddhas. You can easily combine a visit here with a visit to Quan Thanh Temple (Đền Quán Thánh), a little to the south, and other temples/pagodas north of here. I've made a list... More

Enjoyed visiting this impressive Pagoda, in attractive grounds on the edge of West Lake. Another place of refreshing calm in this bustling city. Good to have a guide to explain the interesting history and the purpose of each of the structures.

the Pagoda looks cute expecially seen by LAKE side while using one of the swan/boat ;) i didn't go inside as i imagine nothing special it's in there but is nice to see the shape of it while in the lake! just don't cross the entire city for it ;)

This is just a normal pagoda, there a thousand pagoda which are more beautiful than here. It is on Ho Tay, a beautiful lake in Ha Noi, a cool place to get strong air in the polluted city.
