One of the oldest pagodas in Vietnam, Tran Quoc Pagoda is on the eastern shore of Ho Tay, just off Ð Thanh Nien, which divides this lake from Truc Bach Lake. A stela here, dating from 1639, tells the history of this site. The pagoda was rebuilt in the 15th century and again in 1842.
Nothing much to do inside but really just get a lot of photos of the temple. The best view probably is the one at the entrance, with the tower reflecting on the lake. Bring a jacket..it's really cold!
