This is near Ho Chi Mihn's house and taken as part of a visit to the site worth a few minutes. It is unique in design and very popular on weekends.

We saw this iconic structure whilst visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. You need to have covered shoulders and legs to go in to the temple at the top of the steps, where you will be asked for a donation.

We visited this pagoda during a tour of Hanoi. We were told his pagoda is where people go to pray for children. Many line up to pray. There are many stalls around the pagoda offering food and souvenirs.
