The unique One Pillar Pagoda originally dates back to the 11th Century when it was constructed by King Ly Thai Tong. This tiny wooden structure sits perched on a single concrete pillar in a small pond. The current building was completed in 1954 after the French destroyed the previous pagoda upon their departure from Vietnam that same year.
