  • This Taoist temple was built around the year 1,020, Fortunately has been spared from bombing and from many wars. It's well worth a visit.

  • Is a magnificent temple from Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum in the North walk 10 minutes or less, located just south of Thailand Lake. I think admission fee is 10,000 dong, Chinese-style Temple is worth enough. Good environment is small, but very stiff gate, Temple ornaments and visited the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh City when you go.

  • 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
