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.

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
