Nice entry gate. Nice benches. Harassed by very rude hawkers. We got there at 4 and got to watch some training with swords... Some type of martial art. If you've seen other pagodas though...

Nothing really special here except a relatively peaceful spot to rest for a while in between scooter and car dodging.

Admission was 10000 dong (50 cents). You get your value from the benches in the shade alone! It's not a busy temple, but it's a nice place to take a break. Plenty of benches to sit down and the temple is gorgeous. Everything you want Ina Buddhist temple is there.

It is a small temple but very nice. There are large old trees here so that would be a great stop for you in a hot sunny humid day; on rainy day the ground might be very slippery (that sucks if you wear flip-flop). Inside there is a big statue in bronze of Deity of the North which was created... More

Easy to miss as you approach the lake from the old quarter, active temple with a small entry fee, nice to visit if you are in the area.

This temple is out of the way so I would dissuade making a special trip there just to visit this temple as there are many others scattered throughout Hanoi.
