We arrived around 10am at the Hoa Lu Temples. It was starting to get busy but everything is well spread out. There was even a local school getting a class photo out front. Super Cute! I included a picture of the map of the grounds. It is a beautiful & well maintained area with a lot of history. It is surrounded by high limestone mountains which help hide them from potential invaders. It is one of the ancient capital Cities of Vietnam that dates back to the 11th century to honour the Emperor Ding Tien Hoang, Queen Xuong Ban Nga & their sons. We were there for about an hour and 15mins. Personally, I felt rushed. I think 2 hours would be a good amount of time to not feel rushed. Please remember to dress respectfully. Shoulders, stomaches and knees must be covered

Unfortunately most of the area was closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak but what we were able to see and the information given to us by our guide gave us an insight into the history and what was there.

We called in here, slightly 'templed out' after a month in SE Asia, but found these temples more interesting than we'd envisaged. They benefit from a nice location, approached over a river and surrounded by mountains. I wouldn't make a special trip here but, as part of a general visit to the Nimh Bình region, it certainly has a part to play.

Worth the visit. Beautiful temples but much like the others You see in the area. 30-45 mins and You’ve pretty much taken it all in. If You park Your scooter it is free if You buy a water/coke or fruit.

Such peaceful temples, once the citadel of power in the 10th and 11th centuries, amid the lap of nature will only soothe you. Although there are plenty of guides who might seem disturb you but without them we would not have known the history.
