Some interesting things to see. Looked like a lot of other pagodas though. If you are in the area, give it a look, but try not to go out of your way for it.

Don't need a lot of time here, but it's worth a visit when you are near West Lake. Very peaceful setting visited by visitors as well as locals offering their prayers and sacrifices

Came here as part of a tour, and glad to do so as he pointed out a lot of things I otherwise wouldn't have known, such as the story of the tree opposite the temple. You don't need long here, but a walk around the grounds is well worth doing on a trip to Hanoi.

A nice feature of places like this is that they are honest in not be over-preserved, over-commercialised, and over-protected, so you can enjoy a relaxing visit. A guide is useful to explain the significance of the various features and point out things that might otherwise be missed.

To a foreign traveller, this seemed like your average pagoda. It may a rich history, but all the information boards were in Vietnamese.

We visited this oldest Budhist Temple in the city during the TET-vacations. Therefore we were among hundreds of visitors which were presenting their respect to Budha. The location is beautifull on a small peninsula of the West Lake ( and which we could see from our room-window in the Sofitel Plaza hotel ) The first temple was constructed in the... More

It is a Buddhist temple. The most striking characteristic has to be the high pagoda at its entrance. I was coming from a trip through China, therefore this temple did not impress me at all- I had seen many others which were larger and more detailed. I do respect all religions and I would never disregard this temple as peace... More
