Dated to the 11th century, the temple was dedicated to Xuan Wu or Tran Vu in Vietnamese, one of the principal deities in Taoism, featuring a spacious courtyard and a shrine with a revered bronze statue.

Overall a modest Taoist temple except that the inner chamber contains a statue of the deity Tran Vu which was cast in situ in bronze in the late 17c due to its shear size - wishes are gained, apparently, by rubbing his toes.

Located in the West Lake area, the temple, gate, walls complex is very pretty and is inviting. Quite picturesque. Go earlier as it can get busy with both locals and tourists, Dress appropriately for a temple. Enjoy!

A temple dedicated for Trấn Vũ of Taoism. The temple has strong cultural vibes and it's amazing that VietNamese were able to maintain this temple up todate. One of the must see temples when you visit Hanoi.

Quan Thanh Temple was supposedly one of the must-see temples in Hanoi. However, we frankly found the temple and its complex to be most memable for its front gate. The temple complex is not particularly large but is significant for the fact that it was...More
