What people are saying:

A unique temple to visit. Tourists are allowed to go inside. It is surrounded by the gorgeous park and it is located close to the residence of Ho Chi Min, so it's comfortable to see all of them on the same day.

    Nice Pagoda!

    Nothing spectacular

    Nice place to visit but nothing spectacular unless your are into Eastern Religious sites. It does make a lovey back drop for a photo.

    Sightseeing

    Worth a trip. Historic and beautiful. Warning - do not buy something out of the shops around it. They charge much more than double the regular price.

Additional Information

Introduction

The official title of the One Pillar Pagoda is Yanyou Temple, also known as the Lotus Pagoda, located on the southwest side of Ba Dinh Square. The temple is small, but it is very famous across the land. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it stands on a pillar in the center of the lotus pond, meaning that a pure lotus blooms out of the bitter sea. There are a lot of local people who come here to offer incense wishes. Even the President Ho Chi Minh used to come from time to time.
