It is a different kind of temple, very impressive. Tranquil and peaceful to be enjoyed when the flow of tourists ebbs so you can absorb its majestic height and the serenity it inspires.

This charming little tower pagoda is at the south end of West Lake. It has a tree that is descendant from the Bodh Gaya peepul tree under which Buddha in India achieved Nirvana. There was a service going on when we were there and the incense, chanting and the prayers were very interesting to see.

I loved this area of Hanoi! The pagoda is a very tall Buddhist temple and pictures do not do it justice.

It was closed (with no hours of operation posted) and there is a sign saying that those in shorts will not be allowed in - however the outside is attractive (see photo) and you do save the admission fee.

At a special place on West Lake, it is a pagoda with long history. A lot of women come there at weekend. Everything seems peaceful to be there.

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

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.
