    The pagoda is on what looks like a small island connected by an attractive old wooden red bridge.

    Entrance fee is about 3,000 VND (which was about 60c in our money, almost nothing at all)
    There were a lot of people here when we visited, but very few westerners, and it wasn't too touristy as it seemed a lot were there to pay their respects and do a bit of praying.

    SWORD LAKE AND NGOC SON PAGODA

    The Ngoc Son Pagoda

    The central location of the lake offers great panoramic views. Residents credit Sword Lake with many myths and legends, including huge tortoises that inhabit these waters. In the middle of the lake, on a tiny island reached by a footbridge, stands the Ngoc Son Pagoda, dedicated to Tran Hung Dao, a hero who fought against Kublai Khan’s troops in the 13th century.
