Quan Thanh Temple Reviews
It is just after the Tran Quoc Pagoda on the left side of the road. Very small place to visit. You can have 10-15 min Walk to see this Temple. more »
Tra tutti quelli che abbiamo visitato ad Hanoi, questo tempio è sicuramente il più bello, dopo quello della Letteratura. Da non perderlo more »Of all those we have visited in Hanoi, this temple is certainly the most beautiful, after that of Literature. Don't miss it
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.
