Well worth crossing the bridge to visit and take a moment out for some contemplation. Also see the giant turtle in the temple.

This is a Taoist Temple built to honour the God of the North. It was built between 1010 and 1028 during the Ly Dynasty. It is much quieter than many Temples and a stroll around here can be pleasant and refreshing. We watch two students...More

We found this temple quite by chance as we walked from the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to Trấn Quốc Pagoda. Seeing tourists going in off the street, curiosity got the better of me. There is a minimal entry fee (10,000d – 33p!) to get access...More
