We stopped off here today actually with our tour guide and I would have to say this way my favorite of the temples we visited .
Lovely gardens which serve to join the separate temple complex’s .

This temple or museum is a must for tourists. It reeks of Hanoi’s early history, the taped guides in my tile languages give a great overview of the entry, the period of residence and the path to becoming an early Vietnamese official. Beautifully kept, clearly...More

A quiet, peaceful, tranquil, and serene enclave away from the busyness and noisy traffic of Hanoi. It links and venerates the Chinese philosophers to the culture, education, and scholarly evolution of Vietnam. The site documents the anecdotes and historical literature of Vietnamese over the centuries....More

This temple is 1000 years old and incorporates Vietnam's first national university. It is dedicated to Confucius and has an interesting architecture with 5 courtyards. Probably would recommend an audio guide to understand better the philosophy of education which is behind the architecture.

We visited on a rainy day, and even then, the setting, the architecture, the grounds were inspiring. We would imagine it must be beautiful in warmer, sunny weather. A must stop for anyone visiting Ha Noi.
Good for a short visit to learn about Vietnamese university history, how the first one started in the 11th century, etc. It was a bit crowded when I visited though, so it's not a great place to take a lot of photos.

I have always visited it earlier in the day and when I went pass it around 6pm it was closed. Your best bet is to schedule your visit a bit earlier in the afternoon and go for dinner around that area when you are finished. My family and I found it was a interesting walk, exploring around there.
