# 639 - Tran Quoc Pagoda Hanoi
Category: Culture
Unit Price: US$9.00
Description: Tran Quoc Pagoda on Thanh Nien Road, founded some 1400 years ago, is one of the most ancient Buddhist temples in Hanoi. It houses, besides the usual pantheon of the Buddha and the Mother goddesses, a collection of impressive stupas (tombs), steles dating as far back as 1679, one of the two rare statues of the reclining Buddha found in North Vietnam and a Bodhi tree which had its origin in India. Separated from the bustle of Thanh Nien Road by a narrow causeway, the pagoda is an oasis of peace and solemnity. Nestled between West Lake and Truc Bach Lake, the pagoda is considered a magnificent symbol of Buddhism in Vietnam and is one of the most visited sites in the capital.
Published in 2003 by The Gioi Publishers, Hanoi Viet Nam. 47 pages, soft cover, 15cm x 21cm. In English only.
