Quan Thanh Temple might be overlooked as just another temple in a Buddhist land. But this ancient sight deserves a walk on the grounds. As you walk through the stone gates, a sense of calm surrounds you. I do not recall hearing or noticing the traffic sounds on the other side of the stone walls. Or maybe those sounds just... More

it is located close to the west lake. i believe this is oldest buddhist temple in hanoi. it is big bronze statue and it seems if you rub its toe it will bring you luck. the carving and the acitecture is really worth the visit.

I walked along West Lake from Tran Quoc Pagoda to here. Other than a nice front gate, there is not much to see in here.

This temple is full of beautiful statues. Namely the most impressive huge bronze statue - which was made in one whole piece! You may rub his toe for luck if you wish :) It is very peaceful and lovely here. Definitely recommended.

This is a lovely quiet place to reflect on past and present Vietnam. A cooler setting from the outside heat and as other temples and pagodas are, peaceful and well cared for.

This temple with the pagoda in it is not in my to do list. Can be visited if you are staying several days. My local guide said to us that if you enter this temple by the right door, it means that you are hoping to get lucky and by the left one, that means that you want to increase... More
