Tran Quoc PagodaJanuary 20, 2017 in Vietnam
Tran Quoc Pagoda is one of the oldest ones in Vietnam, and the oldest Buddhist temple in Hanoi located near West Lake. The pagoda was built in the Ly Nam De period (541-547) near the Red River. Then, in 1615, it was moved to west lake. Tran Quoc Pagoda is secluded with many layers, sanctums, many Buddha statues from low to high, from big to small, glittering votive offerings, incense-smoke all year round.
I am amazed with the variety of offerings people bring...the most beautiful bouquets of lillies , baby turtles😤😭 water etc
It is beautiful and pretty clean (for Vietnam standards) around the lake. Well worth the visit.
