Quan Thanh Temple Reviews
A modest looking temple from outside but beautiful on the inside, with a 4m tall bronze statue inside the temple. Lots of pretty statues on the courtyard and cost 30,000 VND (£1) definitely worth... more »
Very authentic and breath taking place. Very quiet inside, you can feel spirit of ancient. One of must see places in Hanoi more »
Very nice temple with interesting architecture. Worth going to have a quick look around.
Cost to park motor bike (if you have) and also an entry fee, but minimal. Very large property, so assume more time walking around than the Pagoda down the street. Getting to isn't the easier and the curbs are Really tall to get your motorbike onto the sidewalk. Very peaceful....I suggest sitting in the courtyard to relax.
