it is considered a cultural symbol of Vietnamese Buddhism partly for it is the oldest pagoda and situated in the center of the capital of Vietnam. More importantly, unlike other ordinary pagodas, Tran Quoc Pagoda was built in a very intricate way. Behind the worshipping shrine is the Buddhist trinity followed by corridors, ten shrines and the belfry. Inside the pagoda, there are many valuable statues, such as the red lac statue trimmed with gold of Sakyamouni Buddha's Parinirvana, which is a masterpiece of Vietnamese sculptural art, and lots of ancient stele

This is a wonderful Buddhist pagoda and, on the other side of the building, temple. The pagoda has a series of marble Buddhas on the ascending levels, all different and of excellent quality. The penjing trays at both sites are huge and magnificent. Very great care has been taken in developing the landscapes in the trays. The rear temple is beautifully set out and decorated. Being sited on West Lake and with 1,000+ years of history behind the site, this is absolutely well worth visiting and appreciating. The best photographs are to be gained from the main road looking back at the pagoda. There is no entry fee. A taxi from the Old Quarter costs about VND 50,000. Make sure you take your shoes off if you enter. I was enthralled by the culture and history here.

A really famous pagoda in West Lake, with history dated back to the 16 or 17th century. Provided a really good view over the lake, with beautiful and tranquil architecture.
PS: If you want to pay a visit, avoid the first day of lunar month (ask your guide) to avoid the crowd.
