Temple sits on a little islet so it kinda looks like its floating. Peaceful and serene apart from the tourists. See the old tombs of late monks and the majestic pagodas where each level holds the remains of monks. See also the Bohdi tree that was planted from a graft of the original tree that Buddha reached enlightenment on (i... More

If you have only a short time in Ha Noi, try to at least visit this spot. Quiet and lovely, with a wonderful pagoda complex and a gorgeous view of the West lake.

Nestled at the perimeter of West Lake this Buddhist pagoda is both an attractive temple and pagoda and a nice place to catch a glimpse of West Lake. You won't spend much time here but it makes for a good photo opportunity.

This pagoda was a nice break from the busy street traffic. The grounds were lovely and calming. There was no admission. Aside from the pagoda there was also beautiful plants, temples, statues, and views. A good walk if you're staying in the old quarter.

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.
