Inner peace?

HDP  079

Here we are again, in the Temple of Literature. This courtyard is where the students used to be relaxing after their lessons, a couple of hundred of years ago. I'm not sure they would be able to relax anymore today with the cars and bikes permanently honking their horns just next to it! But at least the view itself is rather soothing. Enjoy the visit!

From here, we hear no horns and car noise, just the lovely peaceful gardens. Very beautiful.

One of my favourite places too, always go there during Tet though. Its about 5 minutes from my parents' house on pho Nguyen Khuyen. Glad you find some peacefulness here in the middle of hectic Hanoi...
