Hanoi is a bustling city... motorbikes fill the streets creating a near constant din. In such a busy place, finding places of refuge like the Temple of Literature is a welcome relief. A beautiful and peaceful space, this was the place where students came to...More

Beautiful grounds. It’s worth a visit as part of a tour. Very old. There are koi carp and turtles in the pond. There are huge stone tablets with the names of all the graduates since it started in about 1100. Quite amazing.

Only in Vietnam, just a bit divergent than the averaged temple. Op the stairs, through the 2 court yards each with their own story. The display inside very different, still used for prayer and respect for past teachers.

Not what you think it will be. Historically a center of learning and religion. Many locals come to have graduation photos taken here.Well worth the trip.

I was there on Monday at mid day and the enterance fee was 30,000. It's worth it, possibly my favorite site in Hanoi. Very beautiful and totally worth it.
