One-Pillar Pagoda - (Hanoi) Vietnam

One of the earliest day so far in Hanoi, our day started in the freezing morning at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, next stop was at this historic-iconic One-Pillar Pagoda Buddhist temple. Mirroring the architectural splendour of Vietnam, the pagoda structure of pagoda completed in 1950s sits on the lake stilts and its design represents a lotus merging from the water. A prayer at this temple is said to bring fertility (ahem!) and good health, oh-well, saying a prayer for me is still significant for god's blessings.

Heavily promoted as a tourist attraction, we were among the many who were at this temple on this day. But in the quite a small area, I guess people forget about mannerism. going up the stairs was like a mad rush and push. Still, I managed to cover the whole temple and within half an hour, our tour at One-Pillar Pagoda ended, we then journeyed to the Temple of Literature.
