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.

Not really all that out of the way, as a previous contributor suggests. You can easily combine it with a visit to the Ho Chi Minh Precinct, which is not far south, or with a visit to Tran Quoc Pagoda, a bit to the north. I did this as part of a hop, step and jump between temples and pagodas... More

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.

We visited this Taoist temple during the Vietnamese Newyear . Oofcourse it was rather crowded with many worshippers. The location is beautifull next to the Southern end of the dike separating the West Lake from Truc Bach Lake ( this is the lake where pilot and future US Senator McCain parachuted in after being shot down in 1967 ) The...

Small nice temple. Many images and offerings to the Taoist heros, such as the general Xuan Wu. Offerings included cans of beers, cigarettes, fake money, fruits and the usual incenses. Very interesting!

Across the road from the water puppets in this temple - and it's connected across the lake to small islands. Very much a place to see and you do not need the guides on the door who may give you an imploring look but no hassle. Tranquil in the middle of a very busy area.

Super little temple that looks and smells exactly like you imagine a little temple to look and smell like. Beautiful architecture, ornate carving and decoration and a shed load of joss-sticks for that traditional feel. Wonderful place to relax for a half hour before heading on.

We enjoyed our short trip to this small, but peaceful temple. The place as virtually empty, making it a restful haven in crazy Hanoi. Be sure to go into the various buildings to see some the ornate items on display. A local told us that this temple is one of the best examples of what a "standard" Vietnamese temple is... More
