Very pretty setting for this pagoda

This pagoda is beautifully situated on the large lake and it is worth a visit if you are in the area. Very nice buildings and nice views.

Really liked the main pagoda at the front of the grounds but the rest just felt like seeing another temple like the many before. There is a lady selling turtles for you to put into the lake for luck. I felt sorry for them and wanted to buy them all.

Outside the city and surrounded by 5 star hotels - situated on the large West Lake. A single pagoda that celebrates Buddhism and has a storey built for each monk. The grounds are full of shrines and 2 large temples with beautiful gold relief work and large size statues with offerings are kept in immaculate condition.

I visited the place with a friend and learned that the people considered this area sacred. They light incense and pray when they visit this place. I think it's a reflection of their faith and a symbol of their culture.

Beautiful Pagoda best visited during sunset. The place can be reached on foot or by cab from Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum/One Pillar Pagoda tourist sites. Must visit place when you are in Hanoi.

A must visit place once you are in Hanoi. Situated on the beautiful west lake, this pagoda has been a landmark for the city and the heart of many Vietnamese people.

This Pagoda was built seventeenth century on the shore of West Lake in the Old Quater. It is a well worth visiting this Pagoda with some excellent photo opportunities, and an interesting history. Go around the back to see some amazing temple chapels exquisitely decorated. Due to its popularity it can get very crowded but do not be put off... More
