Beautiful, well maintained historical complex. Some educational information in English is provided. Very inspiring. We were lucky to watch the graduation ceremonies there.

Besides being a beautiful building this temple is where knowledge were worshiped for years in Vietnam. It's a way also to understand how knowledge was spread in Asia: in beautiful gardens, not in a classroom.

This has some grand courtyards and elegant buildings to see, especially towards the back (oriented from the ticket office at the front). Well worth seeing, also for the magnificent interiors of several of the temple structures and some trees which beg to be climbed...but it’s not allowed.

Took a guided tour of the temple. Very interesting history and beautiful architecture. We visited around 1200 mid week and was fairly quiet.

There are 5 courtyards to walk around, a temple, house and lovely gardens. We had an hour to kill here, but could have spent more.
