The Perfume Pagoda, Hanoi, Red River Delta Vietnam Location Map

The Perfume Pagoda, Hanoi, Capital City of Vietnam
The current structures left on the site have been rebuilt many times. This area is the destination for Vietnamese Buddhist Pilgrims during Buddhist festival time which is from the 6th of the first lunar month through the 15th of the third lunar month.

Unlike other temples in Vietnam, the only way to reach this sanctuary is boating along a narrow but extremely poetic stream by rowing boats that take 45 minutes. The stream is edged by rice, grass, small paths, and temples here and there.
