This is apparently the oldest pagoda in vietnam. It has an amazing history so best go with a guide to tell you all about it. Many people were there praying and leaving offerings. Right on the river, so a bonus was catching a breeze whilst walking around.

What a fabulous place - here is where Buddhism was first introduced to Vietnam-so much history and so many ancient relics and religious statues -including one extremely large Buddha currently being restored. Don't miss visiting
