Something about the Tran Quoc pagoda
By Hanoi Local Guide


This pagoda is situated on an island linked by a bridge to the causeway between West Lake and Tran Bach Lake. Founded in the early sixth century during the Ly Dynasty, it was moved from next to the Red River to its current location in the early 17th century. In the gardens stands a bodhi tree, taken from a cutting of the original tree, under which Buddha sat and achieved enlightenment. The island and pagoda provide a beautiful backdrop, particularly when viewed at sunset. Visitors must be decently attired and long trousers are required for men.
