One Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi was built originally in 1049 during the Ly dynasty.
King Ly Thai To of the Ly dynasty had the wooden pagoda on a stilt constructed in a lake, and named it Dien Huu, which means happiness and good luck.
According to a theory, the pagoda was built in a style so as to resemble a lotus emerging out of the water.
The present form of One Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi was built in 1955 when the pagoda was refurbished with a concrete pillar from its remnants by the Vietnamese government.
Todays is a replica of the original pagoda, which was a large building.
Take note of the PLASTIC FLOWERS surrounding the Pagoda!
Locals believe that if you pray in this pagoda, it will invoke well-being and fertility.
Please dress respectfully.
