Bach Ma Temple, Hanoi: 9 reviews and 28 photos
"Bach Ma" in Chinese means "white horse". It is a little temple near to Cua O Quan Chuong (Old East Gate). It rather old at the exterior as well as the interior. There was no one attending to the temple when we were there. Columns of red pillars and a panel of well carved pictures of the dragons - very Chinese.
Ly King used the pagoda to pray for assistance in building the city walls because they collapsed every time they were erected. His prayers were answered when a white horse appeared out of the temple and guided him to the site where the walls could be safely built.
This is evidenced by the Cua O Quan Chuong (Old East Gate) which is near to the Bach Ma Temple
