Ngoc Son Temple Tours

Dedicated to General Tran Hung Dao, who defeated the Mongols in the 13th century, the picturesque Ngoc Son Temple on Hoam Kiem Lake is one of the most-visited temples in all of Hanoi. A brilliant red bridge connects the mainland to the temple’s tiny island, where cooling waters and shaded trees circle the place where locals gather for worship and contemplation.

Also known as the Temple of the Jade Mountain, Ngoc Son offers breathtaking lake views and picture-perfect shots of the storied Tortoise Tower, as well as a rare glimpse of richly colored wall paintings, handcrafted sculptures and the Pen Tower. Although crossing the bridge is free, there is a small fee to enter the temple.

Practical Info

Ngoc Son Temple is located at the northern end of Hoan Kiem Lake in central Hanoi. It is easily accessible via the 36 bus. Public entrance is off of Dinh Tien Hoang Road to the east of the lake. It is open daily from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
