Located in the West Lake area, the temple, gate, walls complex is very pretty and is inviting. Quite picturesque. Go earlier as it can get busy with both locals and tourists, Dress appropriately for a temple. Enjoy!

A temple dedicated for Trấn Vũ of Taoism. The temple has strong cultural vibes and it's amazing that VietNamese were able to maintain this temple up todate. One of the must see temples when you visit Hanoi.
