This is known as Lady Buddha Temple and is in the grounds adjacent to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Presidential Site. Dress appropriately and climb the steps to the Pagoda. Very small overhanging a lake.

it was a pagoda, and you see a number of those in Vietnam, this one was small, but of course different resting on only one leg. Close to Ho chi minh mausuleum. So from there it takes not much efford to see it.

We came along here after visiting the Presedential Palace area. Despite the heavy monsoonal rain this area was extremely busy and impossible to get any good photos a a result. The queue into the Pagoda didn't seem worth it.
