Devoted to the Chinese ancient teacher and philosopher Confucius, Temple of Literature & National University houses the first university of Vietnam founded in the 11th century. Constructed under Ly Thanh Tong dynasty in the typical Vietnamese traditional architectural style--from wood and tiles--the temple features five historic courtyards. See the statues representing the ancient teacher and his honored disciples, the 82 stelas commemorating notable scholars, and a small collection of student and mandarin traditional uniforms. Walk the lanes planted with century-old trees and look for a tortoise head--you can see students rubbing it for good luck before taking exams. Put Temple of Literature & National University at the forefront of your travel plans using our Hanoi itinerary planner.

  • 到這裏你就會發覺中國對於越南的影響是很強大的,以前所有的文字全是繁體中文字,週年科舉的製度也跟中國的一樣,完完全全是一個中國的模式。在這裏可以理解到以前古代中國和越南的關係是怎樣的,亦都可以了解到他們以前的讀書教育制度和考試的製度是怎樣的,是非常值得參觀的一個地方。 
  • To visit absolutely it's a must-see for what it represents in the cultural history of the Viet Nam
