The temple is under serious renovation - a building site!! No information as to any completion date. It’s covered in so only possible to see vague resemblances of its possible glory.

White horse temple
Dec 2018
Visited it last year when i had my north vietnam trip in Nov/Dec.it is located in old quarter.but please check the opening time before you go,cuz i missed it once,when i came it is closed,so i wandering around the street to kill time,wasting my time,Bach Ma means White Horse .It's dedicated to a white horse that is said to have led Emperor Ly Thai to the best area to construct the temple. Inside the temple you will find a statue of the white horse, a shrine to Confucius and a Phoenix Altar for offerings to the four seasons.if you are intersted in temple or religions,then here is a must visit temple in Hanoi,and it is the oldest temple in Hanoi.

We tried to visit this temple at the start of October, but unfortunately it seems to have turned into a building site and we couldn’t access it. Please be aware, to avoid disappointment.

Extensive renovations
Jul 2019
When we visited in late July this temple was undergoing fairly extensive renovation work, and as a result it wasn't really possible to see all of it. We contented ourselves with a quick look whilst exploring the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

Don't go on monday
Jun 2019 • Solo
Not open on Monday so I got to see the wall and front of the reputed oldest temple in Hanoi. Appears to be heavily Chinese influenced.
However for the foot wary 10 metres around the corner in Hang Giay Street is the BEST SMOOTHIE stall in the whole of Vietnam and most of Thailand. Made from choice pieces of fruit by a (pyjama clad) lady who prides herself on NOT watering down her product or using below standard quality produce, this place should be a great choice for anyone doing the walking tour of the Old Quarter.

A little Gem in the Busy city: Bach Ma Temple
Jan 2019
A few Blocks from Lake of the Restored Sword in Hanoi is a pretty little Temple: Bach Ma: The White Horse temple. It is the oldest in the vicintiy, & used to mark the City walls. Intricately decorated with a myriad of carvings & artwork: it shows a Beautiful White Horse Statue in the Centre. This Horse bore the cities founding ruler to this place. Check on opening times before you go. It is on a corner, amongst restaraunts & easily passed by, so pay attention to the correct address. It has a different feel to other temples & very well cared for. You might even meet the White temple cat! REALLY worth the look.

Small, Historic Site in Hanoi's Old Quarter
Feb 2019 • Couples
Bach Ma, or "White Horse", tucked in Hanoi's Old Quarter and looking modest from the street, is an excellent, older Confucian/mixed temple. It seems to be busy with worshippers most of the day, but visitors are also welcome. Be sure to note the shrines off to the sides when you first enter, which make Bach Ma somewhat unique. Well-worth seeing to get a feel for Hanoi and Vietnamese spirituality.
