What people are saying:

This temple is on an island in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake. It's a nice spot to relax but you can also find the embalmed remains of a gigantic turtle, who was fished out of the lake in 2011. The temple dates back to the 18th century and is pretty small, but again a nice place to visit.
