I don't know whether this place charges entrance feee, but I arrived here around 6 pm ish nobody asked us to pay. It's grand from the outside but not much to see in the inside. Good to stop by if you are in the area.

It's really surprising that not many tourists visit this temple. The sheer beauty of this small temple is in the carvings and tranquility. A must visit

Worth visiting due to it being one of the oldest temples and one of the Four Sacred Temples of Ha Noi. As with many places visited it helps to either have a guide of research before hand as there is no written info here on what it all means. Given it's age it is in very good condition though there...

A small temple with long history, you can spend 5-10 mins to stop by. It was built in Ly dynasty (1010-1225) with the 4 tons Tran Vu bronze statue in main shrine of the temple.

We were walking around Quan Thanh area and this temple just popped out of nowhere. Its a tiny temple has a 350 year old bronze Buddha but cool and shady. There is a small entry fee of 20,000 Dong per person.

Very small place with a small entry fee. 50k vnd. Not sure it's worth it unless you are extremely interested in the temples. Down the street is a bigger one with no entrance fee.
