Monument to King Le Thai To that I just happened to come across while out walking. I really liked this wee place and thought it very beautiful and peaceful. Good to learn more about local history as well.

This memorial provides an excellent overview of the achievements of King Le Thai To. Located close to Hoan Kiem Lake, it is worth a diversion to see. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Thanks for your vote if you found this review helpful.
