Strolling along the West Lake. I came across a very attractive place just by the side of the bustling street of Hanoi. The 11th century Quan Thanh Temple ( Tran Vu Temple), a Taoist temple in Hanoi, was dedicated to Xuan Wu, one of the well-respected deities in Taoism. It is served as one of four sacred temples in the... More

The temple is so beautiful inside it should be a 5 for excellent...however....the grass is uncleared around the small grounds...nobody looks after the small shop...and nobody generally seems to care ( including the money collector) A lot of locals gather here...a genuine working temple...Must See!

This is a beautiful little temple near Westlake. While it is located on a very busy and noisy road, once you get inside (for 10000 VND ~ 50 cents), the tranquility of the place overpowers the outside noise. There's an impressive statue inside the temple and many locals spend a long time petting its foot.

Very picturesque old style Viet gate and temple with Buddha statues galore. Check with hotel for location as not easy to find, but worth seeking out.

This temple can be difficult to get into and see inside - check the hours beforehand. It is small and simple on the inside - the gate is probably the nicest bit. It ha been rebuilt many times so if you are looking for a slice of the ancient probably not your bag. The location on the lake is good... More
