The oldest pagoda in Hanoi
By Hanoi Local Guide
There is a Bell Tower, Two corridors, Visitors Hall and quite a few Statues. Outside in the courtyard are burial stupas, these are from the Zen Buddhist groups from North Vietnam. The Pagoda is linked by a bridge which is linked to a causeway. It has not always been here, it was moved from Red River to its current position in the 17th century.
In 1959, the visiting Indian Prime Minister offered the Pagoda a gift of a Bohdi Tree. The plant was grafted from the Holy Bohdi tree and is now growing well in the Pagoda's yard.
