Tran Quoc Pagoda today is a cultural symbol of Buddhism and the oldest pagoda in Vietnam.
According to historians, this pagoda was built during the reign of Emperor Liu Nam De, who ruled in 544-548. Initially, the pagoda was erected on the coast of the West Lake, but during the reign of Le Kinh Tong, it was moved to the island of Kim Ngu, as the lake shore began to sink.
Today, the pagoda houses several valuable statues and many ancient steles. There is a bell tower and ten tombs right behind the prayer hall.
