  • Next to West Lake, it is the best temple I've visited in Hanoi. It was very crowded because I visited during Lunar New Year Period. There're beautiful gardens. 
  • Not is of the best temples of the city, but with time is worth it penalty visit it. It is not large and is located in the old town

  • Quan Thanh Temple is the temple that many people often overlook, but a lot of hidden Chinese art. Located next to the Lake, the truk BA Marrakech. Visitors will be free to use, a little temple with offline status.

  • Nice place but with people trying to cheat you inside and outside. Sad that they let them in.
  • Built in the early 11th century, one of the oldest and well conserved temples in town. It is about 500m away from Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum.
  • Rất đẹp
  • It was a very nice visit to the temple, near Trấn Quốc Pagoda so can be visited in same trip
  • Tu tran thang long
