Spend 10 mins to stop by at this Taoist temple

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.

When you visit West lake and standing on Thanh Nien street ( it was called Co Ngu street ), you should have look Quan Thanh temple and pray for peace in your heart. Temple is a historical and cultural place in Hanoi. The structure is great with a special gate. After that, you can buy a tour ticket around West... More

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.

10 minute walk north of Ba Dinh Square and past the colonial looking Presidential Palace, we were walking to the West Lake and come upon this traditional temple. With its 350 year old bronze Buddha. The temple itself I believe is from the 10th century. There is an entry fee of 20,000 Dong per person to visit. I would take... More

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.

On your way to the Presidential Palace or another part of the city, stop by and relax here. It's well shaded and beautiful. It's also very inexpensive. Only 10,000 vnd to go in. Basically .90 cents USD

With no one -- and little literature -- to really explain what's going on inside, this was a vague visit that left little impression. Some of the artefacts within are interesting. More ambience is available at 87 Ma May.

From outside one does not realise what lies within. It looks like an old place. But one is fascinated having seen the altar and the artifects all around. The miniatures really caught my attention. The two birds with their tall nakes and beak are gracious. We could not get to know the eight symbols on the wooden stalks neither why... More
