Ngoc Son Temple is popularly known as the Pagoda of Jade Mountain and is located in the Hoan Kiem lake. It is guarded by two towering posts decorated with Chinese writing.The temple was built in the 18th Century in honour of General Tran Hung Dao (Defeated the Mongols), La To (patron saint of physicians) and a revered intellectual Van Xuong.
One of the most highly visited temples of Hanoi, this Jade Mountain Temple lies in the Hoan Kiem Lake and is connected to the shore by a scarlet bridge. The view of the temple surrounded by the lake is certainly among the best in Vietnam. The scarlet bridge adds an inimitable element of color and contrast to the green lake and blue sky.
