“Beautiful site”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I visited the museum on my own, it was lovely to walk through. There were some signs in English, giving the basic outline of what the Temple of Literature is about, they normally sell guidebooks at the front counter - but were sold out when I went. I think it would be useful to buy the guidebook to get a better understanding.

A nice way to spend a lazy hour - walk around the gardens and get a few nice photos.

“If you like temples go to this one”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Perhaps a bit over visited as this was the busiest place we went to - if you like temples this one is compact and easy to get the most out of your visit. It includes the symbol of Vietnam.
