Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam

12th June, 2020 | Article By LivingTheQLife

Hanoi is a busy city with over 8 million citizens and there are few places where you can escape from the noise. One of those places is the Temple of Literature, which is dedicated to the teachings of Confucius. Unlike pagodas, which are places of worship for Buddhists, the temples in Vietnam are celebrations for famous people in the country’s history. Although Confucius did not live in Vietnam, the country embraced his teachings and created the Temple of Literature in 1070, using it as Vietnam’s Imperial Academy soon afterwards.
