Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
View the ornate architectural style of Chua Tran Quoc, the oldest Buddhist temple in Hanoi. King Ly Nam De commissioned the temple's construction on the bank of the Red River in 541, which took four years to complete. In 1615, King Le Kinh Tong transported the temple to the Kim Ngu islet. When touring this historic complex, take note of its pagodas' red color, which indicates prosperity and luck, as well as the many 17th-century relics, symbolic flower statues, and Indian Bodhi tree. The water surrounding the site makes it particularly photogenic. Plan to see Chua Tran Quoc and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hanoi family vacation planner.
