Dedicated to a hero who defeated an army of 300,000 Mongol warriors, Ngoc Son Temple rests on a small jade islet on Hoan Kiem Lake. To get here, you'll cross a red wooden bridge known as the "Flood of Morning Sunlight." Once you pass the two stone gateways and enter the main hall, you can burn incense sticks at the large bronze brazier, and afterwards visit the pavilion and altars dedicated to scholars and deities. The ornate altar dedicated to the hero Tran Hung Dao stands behind the scholars' shrines, along with a room that holds a cast of the lake's giant tortoise.

Ngoc Son Temple Reviews
입장료가 있기에 그냥 다리 앞에서 사진만 찍고 가는 분들이 많은데 야간에 가면 나름 괜찮은 야경 사진을 남길 수 있는 곳이기도 하다. 굳이 내부를 보러 가기 위해서 들어갈 필요는 없을 듯 하다. more »There are many people who just take pictures in front of the bridge, so it's a good place to take pictures at night. It seems that you don't have to go in to see the interior.

Worth the visit, it conveys a sense of peace and harmony.
A very beautiful temple and has a very beautiful location. You feel like you are on island when you visit there. You have to cross a bridge on the lake and then reach this temple which itself is very exciting. The lake and bridge really looks beautiful in the evening. Definitely go and checkout this temple.
Nice place for a short walk. They have great bonsai trees. The temple is interesting because of its legend and location. The red bridge looks great at night. Although it's a very small place you have to pay an entry fee.
