It is in an area near the pressed entail palace site, mausoleum etc so worth a look while you are there. Charming little Pagoda and we stopped and had a cold drink from the stands at the bottom of it's steps.

While I would definitely recommend this as a quick stop as you are walking through the HCM Mausoleum complex, I wouldn't build an itinerary around this--this is a tiny but quaint pagoda neatly set in the area.

It is small pagoda standing on the lake by just one pillar. Unique architecture with wood in the beautiful garden. But it is very crowded, you must take long time to reach to the stair climb up the pagoda.

Nice little Pagoda set in a small park area, lots of people but you have a good opportunity for some great photos, combine it as it is close to all the attractions near by.

One Pillar Pagoda located near to Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. After visiting the mausoleum, if you do not want to go to the Presidential Palace and pay VND 25,000, you may go straight to the One Pillar Pagoda for free. This temple is unique and I saw many Buddhist people come and go to pray in the pagoda.

Unlike what the other glamorous buildings nearby the pagoda, this one is a bit unassuming and has less grandeur. However, there's a certain charm to the petite pagoda, which nevertheless befits its purpose as a praying altar. Strangely juxtaposed with the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, but a memorable stop nonetheless.

This Pagoda is right next to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Its a small quaint Pagoda surrounded by a lotus pond. Nice area to walk around.

One-Pillar Pagoda is very small and it will take you ten minutes to see it, but the area is very nice and peaceful. A very good look into Hanoi's past.
