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.

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.

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!
