Temple of Literature
The Temple of Literature is easily one of the most charming attractions in Hanoi. It’s made up of a series of courtyards, pavilions, ponds, and gardens, which together symbolized higher learning in ancient Vietnam. A thick brick wall shields this former haven of knowledge from the distractions of the streets. First built in 1070 and reconstructed several times, the grounds are said to be modeled on a temple from Confucius’ hometown.
