The One Pillar Pagoda is often mentioned to be one of Hanoi's most beautiful pagodas. Every tourist guidebook mentions it as a must-see. It's more or less the number one sight in Hanoi.

Situated about a ten minutes’ walk from Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum or the Ba Dinh Square visiting here offers one a chance to sit and relax in a park like setting on benches that line the perimeter of the manmade lake where the pagoda sits. As a cluster of temples and architectural buildings built between the lake station square.

Both groups called Lien Hoa. This station long known as the One Pillar Pagoda, square, each 3m surface, curved roof, built on a cylindrical stone columns. 1.20 m diameter column; 4m high (not including the land submerged) supported a system of slats forming the rib cage firmly support the station house on the other side up a lotus flower in the pond straightened square tiles surrounded by railings. From the outside brick path passing small pond to a ladder leading up to nice Buddha.

The pagoda was built in the reign of Kinh Ly Thai Tong. According to legend, in his dream, in 1049, the king saw a vision of Phat Ba Quan Am. She led him to a shrine in the middle of a lotus pond. When he woke up, he consulted with his court and decided to replicate the shrine in his dream to dedicate it to Quan Am.

The One Pillar Pagoda resembles a giant lotus blossom. And it has become the symbol of Vietnamese rich culture and history.
