Love visiting this place despite all the tourists. It's a bit out of the way but what a restful place inside such a busy city.

This large pagoda is 1450 years old and was relocated to West Lake in 1615. Monks have lived at the Pagoda for centuries. Set close to the water's edge it is a great sight for photographers. The main shrine is very atmospheric with an array of offerings and the smell of incense. Be careful to check opening times in advance... More

We went on a cloudy day, looking for something else. When we saw this driving by, we went in and walked around for a while. Having visited countless temples all over asia for some years now, I was not overwhelmed. It has some good photo ops, and is not in any a bad place. But it was just a little... More

I visited the Temple in March, It was during some ceremony time, there were a lot of people attending the event and it was nicely decorated. But I would skip this temple for its simple architecture.

Wouldn't you like to get away from all the heat and dust and noise and million motorbikes everywhere in roads, on pavements right behind you, in front of you, on your left, on your right, and cutting across you? When you think you manage to cross to the otherside and drain covers on the edge of the pavement are going... More

- It is located in a special place, on West Lake, therefore, it is supposed to be a spot when tourist wanders around West Lake.

The start of my Hanoi day tour leads me to this beautiful 1400 year old Pagoda. The smell of incense lightens up my mood. There are many people already there. Crossing over the bridge leading to the Pagoda, I take in the sights of the lake and its surroundings. People are trading their wares, ladies are carrying their fruits and... More
