CHAO MUNG DEN HA NOI !
There is a feeling of calmness and serenity the moment you walk through the gate and stroll along the green-lined path, bordered by lotus ponds on each side. Another gate will greet you and usher you into a courtyard with a pond. To its left are rows and rows of turtles carved in stone. In Vietnam, the turtle is a symbol of long life and wisdom.
At the far end of the courtyard is a " shrine " for Confucius and Buddha, where many local people come and pay respect.
In my opinion, this is a " classical " place to see in Hanoi. A definite must see when you visit Hanoi.
