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.

This is an island of tranquility. The Pagoda is simple. There are very old and pretty bonsai trees around it. My favorite spot was at the back of the temple building in the Buddha Hall. There were people sitting and praying in this hall. It is an active temple rather than a tourist attraction. We walked to this site from... More

This place is near the west lake and not crowded, probably due to a bit far from the hoam kiem lake. You can find a beautiful pagoda and a peaceful temple here.

This pagoda was located in West lake, there were lots of trees & faces to the lake so the atmosphere was pure & cool. This pagoda also is very beautiful in ancient style & it's a symbol of Vietnam culture. well worth to visit!

We went here without a guide and it was good but I think that the whole experience would have been much more interesting if we'd had a guide explaining the different rituals, buildings, the history ect.

The pagoda is located side by side west lake of Ha noi. It's old pagoda but quite large and has many tree, so atmostphere is cool and fresh. The place is a good ideal to visit in summer of Hanoi.

Beautiful piece of architecture and such a quiet place in a busy city. It is recommended not to wear shorts but they will let you in even if you do.

Located on Westlake, the Pagoda has a beautiful architecture. We also love the surrounding area specifically Thanh Nien street offering wonderful sidewalks.
