We opted to pick up two audio guides to help us understand more about the location. I am so glad that we did as it gave us a better understanding of the history and importance of the temples and items in display. We enjoyed talking with the touring school children- they had a lot of questions for us. I would recommend visiting first thing in Hanoi.
Lovely buildings, serene gardens and interesting details. I would recommend taking an audio guide if you don't have a human guide or much knowledge of the philosophy as I'm sure I would have missed a lot of info and only knew what the guide book told me.
Beautiful temple and garden
