This is a little shrine and a monument, located just next to the lake. While the area of the shrine is not that big, it makes for a good 5-minute stop while circling the lake.

The statue of King Le Thai To is located in a park on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake. He was the founder of the Later Ly Dynasty. The statue is quite impressive and there is a small temple beside it.

Nice lil historical spot to visit in the midst of walking around Hoan Kiem Lake. King Le Thai To was the founder of Hanoi; once a hero and a king. Place where this monument was set up is peaceful and pretty.

Nice relaxing stroll around the statues. Informative signs with the story. Enjoyed a brief break from the noise and traffic whilst walking around the lake.

Small temple devoted to legendary Viet hero/leader. The grounds are kept well and the inscripted rock is translated into English. Leave a small sacrificial monetary note for well-wishing.
