Ngoc Son Pagoda, Hanoi: 3 reviews and 6 photos
The central location of the lake offers great panoramic views. Residents credit Sword Lake with many myths and legends, including huge tortoises that inhabit these waters. In the middle of the lake, on a tiny island reached by a footbridge, stands the Ngoc Son Pagoda, dedicated to Tran Hung Dao, a hero who fought against Kublai Khan?s troops in the 13th century.
