In a busy city it was nice to visit this temple. A peaceful walk around with information to read about it's history. The water in the centre has turtles in :)

Every time I visit Hanoi I take some time to go to the Temple of Literature. IT was the first University in Viet Nam and the stellae still remember the outstanding academics that worked there. Now it is a beautiful place with a nice garden, where You can relax or meditate.
Along with Hoan Kiem Lake, my favourite spot in Hanoi.

This is a site that unless you have a guide, you will not understand the story and purpose of the site. It has a lot of history and I think it is best understood with a professional guide. Otherwise, it just looks and feels like a traditional Asian garden and temple.
