temple on kim ma

posted in: hanoi 1

spent a day with my roomie, Seth, wandering around town, shopping, eating at our fav veggie restaurant (Ha Thanh), and also… visiting the temple on kim ma street.


it was fairly quiet (well, compared to the chaos outside on the street), though there were a few people inside for the mid-month worship. like the other temples around town, this one had a chinese design (must be from the 1,000 years of rule and all). a lot of the time these temples also have really cheesy and ugly chinese sculptures… this one wasn’t too bad though, and even better: there was vietnamese AND chinese characters on the gate. cool!

    Aw… I miss Hanoi, and you too. I’ll have to watch the traffic video again to see if I can shake it.
