Tran Quoc Temple on West Lake
By Hanoi Local Guide


On my last morning in Hanoi, I walked through the rain to visit Tran Quoc temple, whose pagoda I had seen every morning as I commuted from my hotel into downtown. I have no idea what the history of the temple is, but it seemed to be quite popular with westerners and locals alike. I only had a few minutes to spare, and I wish could have spent a little more time here when the rain was gone. I have seen many famous temple in Vietnam, such as the Citadel of City in Hue, Quan Am pagoda in Sai Gon, but Tran Quoc temple really is amazing!
