Hoa Lu temples of the Dinh & Le Dynasties, Ninh Binh
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Two of the last remaining structures from the 10th-century capital, Hoa Lu temples of the Dinh & Le Dynasties invite you to uncover this ancient era of Vietnamese history. Home to the country’s first two imperial dynasties, the temples were built in honor of the Dinh and Early Le families. Built some 600 hundred years after the demise of the citadel, the restored grounds feature paths that wander in the shadow of looming limestone mountains, then lead up 200 steps to the temples’ entrances. Located 300 m (984.2 ft) apart, each temple hosts its own altar in memory of the Le and Dinh emperors, housed in typical 17th-century Vietnamese wooden architecture. Consider hiring a guide to take you around the site, as you won't find signage in English. Put Hoa Lu temples of the Dinh & Le Dynasties and other Ninh Binh attractions into our Ninh Binh trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

I think many tourists stop by on the way to Tam Coc or other destinations in Ninh Binh. I wish they had information board for each temple/ building so that tourists can learn more about the place.
Stay in the location with moutains and river around, Hoa Lu is the Vietnamese ancient capital. You can know more about Vietnamese history as well as culture.
