Nice relaxing stroll around the statues. Informative signs with the story. Enjoyed a brief break from the noise and traffic whilst walking around the lake.

Small temple devoted to legendary Viet hero/leader. The grounds are kept well and the inscripted rock is translated into English. Leave a small sacrificial monetary note for well-wishing.

Monument to King Le Thai To that I just happened to come across while out walking. I really liked this wee place and thought it very beautiful and peaceful. Good to learn more about local history as well.

This memorial provides an excellent overview of the achievements of King Le Thai To. Located close to Hoan Kiem Lake, it is worth a diversion to see. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Thanks for your vote if you found this review helpful.

This is a little shrine and a monument, located just next to the lake. While the area of the shrine is not that big, it makes for a good 5-minute stop while circling the lake.
