Bridge to Ngoc Son Temple
Hoan Kiem district

Taken from the bridge to the Ngoc Son temple on the Hoan Kiem lake just in the center of Hanoi, Vietnam.

Some small turtles can still be seen in the lake even though a legend mentions gient turtles coming out on the surface of the lake once in a while.

More About Hanoi

This is the historical central area of Hanoi, capital of Hanoi. Hanoi estimated population 3,398,889 (2007), is the capital and second-largest city of Vietnam. From 1010 until 1802, with a few brief interruptions, it was the political centre of an independent Vietnam. It was eclipsed by Huế during the Nguyen Dynasty as the capital of Vietnam, but Hanoi served as the capital of French Indochina from 1887 to 1954. From 1954 to 1976, it was the capital of North Vietnam.
