this temple was a part of our tour, this is why we visited there. we were not fascinated but were not also disappointed, i think better to visit not to feel you have missed sth.

This set of temples is most of what remains from Hoa Lu, Vietnam's 10th-11th century capital. The age of the temples shows, but the peaceful setting gives the place a magical feel.

this is a serene location nestled amongst the sheer mountain cliffs - nice river meandering past it. One gets the feeling of a magnificent past empire that once occupied these grounds - especially standing in the middle of the large open area in the middle...More
