Temple of Literature, Hanoi: 67 reviews and 173 photos
A must see on any visit to Hanoi is the Temple of Literature, which was actually founded as Hanoi's first University nearly a thousand years ago. In fact, the temple/university itself is actually only ten years younger than the city of Hanoi itself. It's a verdant, peaceful park in the middle of the bustling city, with classic Vietnamese architectural features. I loved all the nooks and crannies of the temples, including the stones containing the names of graduating students. Don't miss the pond in the middle of the complex or the true temple area in the back. In fact, the temple area contained a Vietnamese band playing traditional music while wearing old-time costumes.
