As one of the famous temples of Hanoi, when you come to the Ba Danh pagoda, you will be surprised by its deserted landscape. Not only on weekdays but also full moon days, the pagoda is always more quiet than other temples in Hanoi. It reminds people of the allegory “as quiet as Ba Danh pagoda.”
Some people believe that the allegory was created because in the past, this pagoda was built for the Cham people. After they moved to other areas, this pagoda became quiet and deserted. However, today the quiet space of Ba Danh pagoda brings relaxation for visitors.
