It is just after the Tran Quoc Pagoda on the left side of the road. Very small place to visit. You can have 10-15 min Walk to see this Temple.

We paid ₫10,000 each (£0.33 or about $0.40USD) to get in here. Even if it was terrible, which it isn’t, it’s 33p. Who cares? This is a nice temple about half a mile away from the Quan Thanh Pagoda and was nice to go in...More

Despite 1 reviewer complaining about the 50C entry price I would suggest that it worth a visit as it a living entity and obviously associated with a belief system for people in the vicinity. It is set by a large lake which unfortunately seems to...More

The temple is old and lovely, but small. We were lucky to have a chance to spend some time observing master and students practice their sword fighting skills; otherwise a good place for a quick look and a short rest.

A little out of the way. Despite its historical and cultural importance, it is a small temple with not much to do there. So, come this way only if there are things in the area you'd like to visit.

Your list is a very good itinerary for Hanoi, but you should not miss Hoa Lo, often called 'Hanoi Hilton' - the former French security prison, which was also used for the US prisoners of war. It is a very interesting museum... More
