This is an old temple on Hang Bac Street in the Old Quarter. The modest exterior did not prepare us for the colourful and elaborate altar and interior. Worth a visit if in the area.

Bumped in to this place by accident down a side street. Nice temple and free to visit. Nice architecture. There's a nice cheap and cheerful hotel nearby for like £9 a night.
