Walk in burn some incense and watch the Vietnamese pray. Stop for a long moment ; try a prayer yourself and let the spirit of this ancient Buddhist shrine sink in. If you come for the visual spectacle alone, then you have missed it.

Interesting pagoda/park/ ornate temple, with many tiny shrines. Worth a walk,, in late afternoon, evening, a beautiful setting. One of Hanoi's oldest temples, by West Lake. Temple dates from 11th-12th century. Be sure to see statue of Tran Vo and the large bronze bell.
