Temple of Literature, Hanoi, Vietnam

Inside the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam

One of my favorite places in Hanoi, this well preserved temple is a peaceful and serene retreat from the chaotic streets outside.  Founded in 1070, and dedicated to Confucius, the Temple of Literature was Vietnam’s first university.

  1. The Temple of Litterature – when I saw the title I expected a library.

    1. Understandable. Historically it was a place to study the writings of Confucius, Buddha, etc.
