This is slightly different to the other temples in Hanoi, being Taoist. Beautiful buildings with lots of nice exhibits inside.

There is corner of Quan Thanh str & Thanh Nien str. The gate have opened only a little when arrived there. So, i have passed in front of the temple and then had to be back. I have known this temple is smaller than my thought. But i was happy to have good timing. It has been shooting a picture... More

There is a danger of getting an overdose of temples. However this tranquil place provides a break from the bustle of city life and contains some interesting content if you have a competent guide.

This temple provides a good view of a Confucian/Taoist temple typical of Vietnam. Its origins are old, back to the founding of Hanoi when it was one of the four main temples. Although there have been several restorations, most recently in the late 1800's, it retains a feel of what Hanoi once was -- something very rare.

Great temple on an easy walking route, quite beautiful and active, with a massive 600 year old bronze as it's center piece!

This fine little 900 year temple has acquired a name of its own in far away Denmark. To the mild surprise of the neighbours it's on the agenda, whenever the Prince Consort of Denmark revisits Hanoi. The Prince grew up in Hanoi in a wealthy French family. In 2009 he brought his spouse - the Queen of Denmark - to... More

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
