Beautiful, peaceful & interesting history of this sacred place! A great place to visit and scope out in old quarter area; it’s cheap, doesn’t take too much time at all but is relaxing. Located on beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake; tons of things to do in this area! Follow @travelingypsey on Instagram & GoogleMaps!!!

This is the Temple of the Jade Mountain and is located on the Jade Islet in Hoan Kiem Lake. This temple is small, but it's unique location makes it a must visit in Hanoi.

We arrived here later one afternoon around 4:15pm and spent about an hour. It cost 30,000VND (about $1.75CAD). They close at 5pm but didn't r rush people out but didn't let anyone else in.This has the most picturesque bridge. There was so many people here when we got there and everyone wanted the same picture on the stunning red bridge. It is located in the Old Quarters and is a small island on Hoam Siem Lake. There was so many people all sitting around like bumps on a log. it was really weird. Then all of a sudden they lite the whole place up. So It all started to make sense that is what most of the people were there for that. So it might be better to go at a different time of day. Who knows maybe it’s nuts all day. The temple was very nice with fresh flowers every where. The temple was built in the 18th century on the Island in the middle of the Lake of the Returned Sword. Legend has it the emperor was given a magical sword which helped him defeat the Chinese Ming Dynasty. When he defeated the Dynasty the Golden Turtle returned to the lake. There are endangered large soft-shell turtles still swimming in the lake. Lots of locals were there to make their offerings. The grounds and temple are well maintained. It has a beautiful view over the lake.

Located right in d centre of Hoan Kiem Lake. Its a beautiful sight to behold,esp in the evenings when its all lit up. U have to walk through the red bridge to reach the temple. Its closed by 6pm. Can spend half an hour here. Quite peaceful.

Nice looking Temple on a small island in the lake visited via a bridge . Small entrance fee. Not a lot to see but worthwhile even if just for the photos
