  • Near the station, Quang sue to a temple. So like most of the Temple in Hanoi, but extensive use of yellow and red, dance written in Chinese characters in a variety of places, is like a Chinese temple. Holiday morning guest visitors of the Viet Nam people pretty much the Kansu Street in front of the Temple will be difficult as it is.

  • I visited this temple after visiting the former prison built by the French (Hoa Lo prison) at a stone's throw from distance, as saying that the serenity of the place made good after the oppressive side of the prison. The temple has nothing extraordinary in itself, but it's nice to stop a few moments. The altar inside the temple is quite richly decorated. Incidentally, this temple is the headquarters of the Buddhist Union of the Viet Nam...

  • Quan Su Temple was built in the 15th century under the Lê Dynasty. At that time there was no Buddhist temple here but some cottages used as a place of worship. According to Hoàng Lê nhất thống chí, during Emperor Le The Tong's reign, Chiem Thanh (Champa), Ai Lao (Laos) usually sent ambassadors to offer tributes to Đại Việt (official name of Viet Nam under the Lê Dynasty). The Emperor ordered to construct a building called Quan Su (Embassy) to receive foreign ambassadors to Thăng Long. Because those ambassadors were all Buddhist, they decided to build a temple on the premises for worship. Today only the temple remains. According to Doctor Le Duy Trung's essay carved on the 1855 stele, the temple was close to Hau Quan Base in the early years of Gia Long Era (1802–1819). In 1822, the temple was renovated so that the local residents could practise worship here. When the troops withdrew, the temple was returned to the villagers. Monk Thanh Phuong, who hosted the temple then, had corridors built, statues painted, bell made. The front palace is dedicated to the Buddha and the rear palace is dedicate to Master Minh Khong of the Lý Dynasty.
