Chua Tran Quoc

Originally built in the sixth century, Chua Tran Quoc is the country’s pagoda, a beautiful testament to how dedicated Vietnamese people are in preserving and honouring history and culture.

From a distance, Chua Tran Quoc commands attention just by its striking red exterior, a colour that symbolises prosperity and luck. Inside, relics from the 17th century, religious artifacts, statues of symbolic flowers, and an Indian Bodhi Tree give tourists a glimpse of what Vietnamese Buddhist believe in. A beautiful reflection of Chua Tran Quoc can be seen in nearby West Lake and Truc Bach Lake –a sight that makes the attraction more picturesque.



Chua Tran Quoc is located at Thanh Nien, Hanoi.
