We took the time to wander from the Old City to this pagoda on the lake. The walk gives you another perspective of Hanoi, and the pagoda itself is quite beautiful. It is several 'stories' high with niches holding over 50 Buddha statues. Beautifully located on a small peninsula on the lake, it is quite picturesque. Note: Visitors must be... More

I've always been fascinated by Agoda, I can not explain why, but they have something mystical that takes me. Since this is the oldest I could not lose it. That'S Nice.

More importantly, unlike other ordinary pagodas, Tran Quoc Pagoda was built in a very intricate way. Behind the worshipping shrine is the Buddhist trinity followed by corridors, ten shrines and the belfry. Inside the... More

This is a wonderful Buddhist pagoda and, on the other side of the building, temple. The pagoda has a series of marble Buddhas on the ascending levels, all different and of excellent quality. The penjing trays at both sites are huge and magnificent. Very great care has been taken in developing the landscapes in the trays. The rear temple is... More

A really famous pagoda in West Lake, with history dated back to the 16 or 17th century. Provided a really good view over the lake, with beautiful and tranquil architecture. PS: If you want to pay a visit, avoid the first day of lunar month (ask your guide) to avoid the crowd.

This is a very calm place in Hanoi. It is lovely to walk around and just sit inside this Pagoda. When we went in Dec the weather was good and there was Sun, so we enjoyed it. Also a great place to click pictures. One of the best maintained places in Hanoi.

Beautiful, can buy and release turtles in the surrounding lake... A bit dirty. Saw lights... Might be very nice at night? Good condition temple in working order around the back side.
