Do Temple (Den Do)
Do Temple is located in Dinh Bang village, an area known for its religious and cultural traditions.
The temple was established to commemorate the 8 kings of Ly Dynasty: Ly Cong Uan, Ly Thai To, Ly Thai Tong, Ly Thanh Tong, Ly Nhan Tong, Ly Than Tong, Ly anh Tong, Ly Cao Tong and Ly Hue Tong. Surrounding the typical Northern pagoda architecture is a green area covered in trees and fresh air. At the front of the temple, like most other pagodas, there is a pond to keep the wood from drying out the feel.
