1. Tran Quoc Pagoda, Hanoi
Considered one of the best temples in Vietnam, Tran Quoc Pagoda with 1500 years of history is the first temple built under King Ly Nam De (541 – 547) on the banks of the Hong River. When completed, the pagoda was named Khai Quoc pagoda. After many renaming and relocation, by the end of the 17th century, the pagoda was named as Tran Quoc by King Tran Hy Tong and was located on a single island east of West Lake, in present-day Tay Ho district.
The first unique feature of Tran Quoc Pagoda is the entrance of the pagoda. There is a softly curved path leading to the temple. Going through the temple gate, visitors only need to follow the only red-tiled road to get to the inner structures including the main hall in the middle.
The corridor continues to be extended by the incense burner and the upper palace, behind it was the bell tower. The highlight of Tran Quoc pagoda is the unique tomb tower of pagoda behind the pagoda with many ancient towers which was built in the 18th century.
