Ngày đăng : 12/5/2012
The Returned-Sword Lake is the emerald jewel of Hanoi. For many generations, Vietnamese believed that deep in this green water there is a sacred sword of their ancestors, which is carefully safeguarded by the golden tortoise.
Being built on the Jade Islet, Ngocson temple was dedicated to the Confucian, Taoist philosophers and the national hero - Tran Hung Dao. The temple is a popular spot for visitors coming to the lake.
