Whether driving from the bustling Hoan Kiem County or the bustling Bating County to the West Lake, on the Goldfish Peninsula at the southern end of the West Lake, Zhenguo Temple is often the most dazzling beacon on the West Lake, attracting everyone's attention. Regardless of day or night, Zhenguo Temple has its own unique charm. Zhenguo Temple has a history of thousands of years and has been renovated several times, and it is still the center of faith where the local incense flourishes. The most distinctive feature of Zhenguo Temple is the various pagodas in the temple, enshrining several Buddhas of Sakyamuni, both solemn and peaceful. There are also pagodas with unique Vietnamese Chinese characters and hán nôm, which not only depict the unique cultural connotation of Vietnam, but also a religious art. There is a tranquil Bodhi tree in the innermost temple of Zhenguo Temple, which is said to be taken from the Bodhi of Sakyamuni's Epiphany in India. Away from the hustle and bustle, standing under the Bodhi tree, looking at the West Lake, trying to let go of the body and mind, the Dharma is in it.
Hanoi is famous for its lakes that span the city. This Buddhist temple and pagoda are on one of the large lakes. From the busy main road, a bridge took us to this quiet and serene place, away from the busy streets. There is no entrance fee, but make sure you dress appropriately and don't wear shorts, short sleeves or off-the-shoulder clothes. Can be photographed. People must take off their shoes when entering temples and prayer areas. If you want to see the art and architecture of Buddhist temples and pagodas, this is well worth your visit. If you are looking for a peaceful and peaceful place away from the busy streets of Hanoi, then you must come here. When we were on the tour bus, we saw the temple next to the West Lake. As soon as we got off the tour bus, small vendors came to sell fruits and small bags, but we still had to shop around to see which one is cheaper. There is a spiritual bone pagoda in the temple. , Don’t walk around, enter the main hall behind. If you want to enter the worship, you must take off your shoes before you can enter.
Built on the 6th Century, in what at the time was known as Yen Hòa village, this small Pagoda is very valued by devoted Buddhist. I found the brick construction quite original and pretty.
I totally fell in love with this little gem of a place. The Tran Qhoc Pagoda is a really cool tiered pagoda located in a quiet, leafy area of Hanoi, and doesn't have the tourist of other temples and pagodas. Cross a small track across the West Lake to reach it and you'll pretty much have the place to yourself! It's in great condition and makes a lovely photo.Take time to explore the whole area (allow around 30-40 minutes as it's quite small), as part of a larger day trip around the city.
This is a lovely pagoda to visit when you're in Hanoi. Located on the north side of town and situated between two lakes, it seems to be a pagoda more frequented by locals than by tourists. There's a large pagoda, place some potted plants dotted around a garden, and two rooms of worship which feature large statues. There's a huge beautiful old tree in the back garden. It's free to enter.
I am not sure why this is not a more popular attraction in Hanoi. The Tran Quoc Pagoda is located in the northern part of Hanoi and is sandwiched between two beautiful lakes. The pagoda is off of Thanh Nien which separates West Lake and Bach Lake, making for a very attractive area to hangout for tourists and locals.
