Temples and Tombs Part II

Originally uploaded by yellojkt.
This Buddhist temple is a supported on a single pillar in the middle of a pond, hence the name of One Pillar Pagoda. Like many historical buildings in Hanoi and Vietnam in general, it is not original. The original one at this location dates to 1049. The current one was rebuilt at a smaller scale in 1955 after being destroyed by the French.
