Tempel am Wegesrand - Temple on the edge of the road

A Temple on the edge of the road, Hue 2013

Vietnam has no such famous temple sites as Angkor Wat in neighboring Cambodia or the great temple of Bangkok. Some of the favorite local temples are not located in the big cities of Vietnam, but rather outside, including the Chua Dau Pagoda in the province of Bac Ninh, about 30 kilometers north of Hanoi.

However, as in all Asian countries, every village, town, and district have its temples. Often these small, untainted plants are real jewels, which are worth a visit and usually they are also entirely alone for themselves and can make the mood intensely.
