One of the most famous temples in Hanoi. It’s indeed beautiful but a little too crowded with tourists. I prefer visiting some less famous temples, in the outskirts of Hanoi.

The very well preserved temple has gardens and very beautiful enclosures. Do not be alone with the visit to the temple, the surroundings also house a series of very diverse people. The entrance purchase is near the entrance on the left and costs 30.000 vn

Many more things we know about study education at that time. Woman aren't allowed to study. Also there are three entrances at every historic place in Vietnam. I think they're spiritual things are still near that place like I can feel it.

We took a tour here with a guide and it was so incredibly interesting. Grounds were very well maintained. Guide explained the history and culture. Don’t miss it.

A temple of Confusius built in 1070. It has 5 courtyards and pavillions. As per Wikipedia, the layout is similar to that of the temple at Qufu, Shandong, Confucius' birthplace. A must see temple for those history and culture travelers like me.

An incredible place to visit that has been associated with learning for centuries. Students still visit it today to pray and give thanks about their studies. Interesting Chinese style architecture.

We enjoyed wandering around the grounds and buildings. And it was interesting to watch art students drawing some of the historical items. If you are in Hanoi I would recommend you visit these ancient buildings.

I was there on Monday at mid day and the enterance fee was 30,000. It's worth it, possibly my favorite site in Hanoi. Very beautiful and totally worth it.
