We visited Hoa Lu after visiting Bai Dinh temple complex and I preferred Hoa Lu. It’s small, has a more authentic feel (because it’s actually an old temple and not been constructed for tourists) and there is some interesting history about the Dinh and Le dynasties to be learned. It only costs 20,000vnd for entrance to the main temples and can be covered in around 45 minutes-1 hour. We opted not to have a tour guide and just do our own research about the site and don’t feel that we suffered for not having a guide. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’ve got the time whilst staying in Ninh Binh.

it was just a normal nice place as some of the other places of this area, i think some attractions of Ninh Binh re not really fascinating but need to visit to understand what does Ninh Binh mean. so if you are in a tour just visit this place also

It’s pretty small place which doesn’t seem so impressive in my eyes. May be I don’t understand about ancient things. i would have rather skipped this place.

We visited this place as part of our Ninh Binh day tour from Hanoi and it was the first stop of the itinerary. Our guide, Gary explained the significance of the Hoa Lu temples from the perspectives of Vietnamese and in the context of Vietnam history. We were regaled with the tales of princes who fought for the thrones and kept the invaders away. The temples were not huge but in overall, it was great to know a bit of the ancient history of Vietnam.

Worth a quick visit but was not as impressive as main pagoda ... recommended for a 1h stroll - visited in September with not that many visitors around
