“Didn't look like a pagoda”
Reviewed 25 February 2013 via mobile

We spent around 15 minutes looking for the place with a map but were unable to recognize it despite passing it by on a few occasions. We had expected a pagoda but it was actually a temple. Bring a picture.
We entered it unknowingly and spent around 5 minutes looking around.
We didn't see any tourists but there were many locals offering prayers and incense.
Bring a guide as there were no English descriptions of the place.

“History and modernity”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

500 years of history here and a large teaching staff make this an important place for the city. Pity they replaced the grounds with parking lots and commerce, Go any time to see the people who are involved with the society. Go After Tet to see a frenzy of prayer. And rad the Ho Xuan Huong Poem about the duplicity of religious figures, preferably in the Balaban translation
