4 Attractions To Visit In Hanoi Vietnam

One Pillar Pagoda

The One Pillar Pagoda is one of the main attractions in Hanoi and reflects the amazing architecture that the country has to offer its visitors.

The pagoda was built in 1049 when the emperor at the time, Ly Thai To of the Ly Dynasty, prayed to Buddha for a boy after previously being unsuccessful. A few months later, his wife gave birth to his only son and to celebrate he built what is today known as the One Pillar Pagoda.
