Right in the centre of the serene lake is Ngoc Son Temple, a prominent temple sitting on a small island. The sacred temple, along with other architectures, create a historical complex that has been the pride of Hanoian for hundreds of years.

I. Legend of Ngoc Son Temple

Ngoc Son Temple (Jade Mountain Temple) was erected in the 19th century in commemoration of Tran Hung Dao, the greatest military commander of the Tran Dynasty. With his military brilliance, Tran Hung Dao led the Vietnamese Army to several victories over the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century. The temple also pays homage to Van Xuong De Quan, the God of prosperity in ancient Chinese culture and Taoist philosophy.

Initially, the tourist attraction was named ‘Ngoc Son Pagoda’. However, in Vietnamese culture, pagodas serve as the place for Buddhism practices, while temples are dedicated to the worship of historical figures. Therefore, soon after construction, its name was changed into  ‘Ngoc Son Temple’.

The temple underwent inclusive repair in 1865 under the direction of Nguyen Van Sieu, an eminent scholar of the Nguyen Dynasty. Other structures constructed during that time are The Huc Bridge (Light of Dawn Bridge), Tran Ba Dinh (Tidal Wave Defense Pavilion), But Thap (Pen Tower) and Dai Nghien (Ink Slab). Altogether, they form a remarkable complex of relics which reflect the spiritual life of the 1000 year old capital.

II. Highlights of Ngoc Son Temple- Unique Features

It is not an overstatement to call Ngoc Son Temple and its surrounding artifacts the architectural phenomenon of Hanoi. Each part of the complex possesses a unique charm and meaning. And when united, they turn into a harmonious architectural structure. To fully admire the exceptional beauty of the site, begin your journey by crossing The Huc Bridge, then go through a collection of structures before reaching the final destination, Ngoc Son Temple.

1. The Pen Tower and The Ink Slab

Right before getting on The Huc Bridge, you will be captivated by The Pen Tower and The Ink Slab, the impressive stone features contributed by Nguyen Van Sieu.

The Tower, resembling a pen with its nib pointing to the sky, sits on a rock pile which represents the earth. The meaning of The Pen Tower is depicted in three words ‘Ta Thanh Thien’ (Writing on the blue sky), which was carved on a stone slab next to the tower.

Ever since ancient times, our ancestors have had such phenomenal dreams that can only be expressed by writing upon the sky. Nevertheless, none of them seems implausible when we have a firm ground to stand on.
