It was quite a small temple and less people inside when we visited there. Entrance fee was 10,000VND per person.

It is not really a must see, but if you are going to west lake anyway, no harm trying. Nothing much on west late anyway.

Quan Thanh Temple might be overlooked as just another temple in a Buddhist land. But this ancient sight deserves a walk on the grounds. As you walk through the stone gates, a sense of calm surrounds you. I do not recall hearing or noticing the traffic sounds on the other side of the stone walls. Or maybe those sounds just... More
