One of the most known places to visit in Hanoi is the Temple of Literature. Located in the heart of Hanoi, the temple is surprisingly a peaceful and relaxing area.

Dedicated to Confucius and his scholars, it is the country’s oldest monument to education. Only the sons of mandarins were first admitted here until this place opened to all talented commoners.
