Nice 11th century temple and one of the Four Sacred

Good place to start a walking tour of Hanoi as its just a short stroll down to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It is a large Temple and has the second largest bronze statue in Vietnam.

Next to West Lake, it is the best temple I've visited in Hanoi. It was very crowded because I visited during Lunar New Year Period. There're beautiful gardens.

This is a great spot with beautiful gardens, lovely temple and so many photo opportunities. We strolled through the grounds and loved the turtle sculptures and the temples were filled with lots to see. We had a tranquil, enjoyable afternoon but noticed two tour buses arriving as we left so might be better to go early like we did.

Often groups of people, wedding parties, university graduates here for formal picture taking. You sometimes have to pass through a group of vendors at the front gate trying to sell trinkets or begging - just say no and pass... More

This is a very quaint small temple. The unique thing about this temple is that it's located right in the city off of West Lake. Is it a must see, not really, if you want to learn a little about the local history or are a devout buddhist then stop by.

It was quite a small temple and less people inside when we visited there. Entrance fee was 10,000VND per person.
