  • I went to 10/2017. Within walking distance from the hankiemun Lake, next to the Hanoi public museum building have seen together. When observing the beliefs of the local people in the Chinese-style Temple was a good luck in the intently, so not to disturb. There is no Guidebook for more description, but "Chua & cancer" name in map.

  • I live these temples. The peacefulness that overcomes you when you enter. The beauty of their religious artifacts.
  • Nice old temple in a busy neighborhood. Centre for Buddhism in Vietnam. Peaceful and authentic.
  • People using this place a lot. Very full and busy during the day. Nice style too.
  • 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.
