About
Legend has it that Quan Thanh Temple was established during the reign of Emperor Ly Thai To (reigned 1010–1028) and was dedicated to Tran Vu, Deity of the North in Taoism, whose symbols of power are the serpent and turtle (see section on Animal Symbolism below). Quan Thanh Temple (Den Quan Thanh) is located at the crossroads of Thanh Nien Street and QuanThanh Street, near West Lake, Ba Dinh District, Ha Noi. Built during the reign of King Ly Thai To (1010-1028) and renovated many times, the temple is also called Tran Vu temple, since it is dedicated to Huyen Thien Tran Vu (Guardian of the North of the Country). QuanThanh temple is an important historical and cultural place in Hanoi.

We visited this temple whilst using the Hop on Hop off bus. Easy to find and worth a visit if you are in the area. Small entrance fee. Quite small so will only take you 20 minutes or so to see. They also have a small art shop. We bought a great picture whilst we were there.

Worth visiting if you're in the west of Hanoi. It is a taoist temple and it is nice and peaceful and in good condition. The entrance ticket is cheap (10k vnd) and it does not take too long to visit it.

This is one of Thang Long Tu Tran - four temples guarding the four sides of the ancient Thang Long citadel. This is a temple with very big bronze statues. Entrance ticket price is 10.000 VND/adult

Very peaceful temple near a busy intersection but you forget all about that as soon as you enter. There a great bronze statue right inside the temple of Tran Vu deity which is surprising.
Well worth the visit and also take the time to walk to the north alongside the lake to see the Tran quoc pagoda.

I visited here during a recent trip to Hanoi. I have visited quite a few temples in SE Asia and this one was nice but not the most memorable. The history of the place is interesting and the decorations are very nice. If you have time, I would stop here or if you have not had the chance to visit temples in Vietnam, I would definitely go.

10 centuries old, we walk from West lake and Pagoda to Temple of literature and passed it by. By many chosen as one of top attraction. Very probably, you to have history interest. We were not expecting to have this kind of stop but positively surprised

Visit at the same time as Tran Quoc Pagoda as only 5 minutes walk away. We arrived at the pagoda and it was closed for lunch so walked to this temple. Worth visiting and was good to see. There is a small entrance fee to get in.

A temple dedicated for Trấn Vũ of Taoism. The temple has strong cultural vibes and it's amazing that VietNamese were able to maintain this temple up todate. One of the must see temples when you visit Hanoi.
