"Martyr's monument" Hoan Kiem Lake Tip by Tijavi

Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi: 100 reviews and 229 photos

 
 

Near the main gate of Ngoc Son Temple is a nondescript monument that looks like a miniature pagoda. This piece of concrete is the Martyr's Temple, which was built to honor the men and women who died for Vietnam's independence. Foreign tourists may overlook it, but its historical significance is apparent from the number of local tourists stopping by for some picture taking opportunities.
