Duong Lam village
Not far from Hanoi is Duong Lam, a rural village in the northern Red River Delta famed for its well-preserved traditional architecture.
Here you will visit Mong Phu temple in Mong Phu commune - the only hamlet whose original village entrance remains intact, and continue on through the narrow alleys to see the old laterite houses which make up this charming village.
The Mia Pagoda, located in another hamlet of Duong Lam, was built in the 15th century and contains some 287 statues of all sizes, amongst which are famous sculptures of the Buddha and the statues of the 'Eight Vajra Deities'. Stop in at Ngo Quyen temple and Phung Hung temple, places dedicated to two Vietnamese national heroes: Ngo Quyen and Phung Hung. Finally on the way back to Hanoi you'll make a stop at Tay Phuong Pagoda. This pagoda offers beautiful architecture as well as ancient and unique sculptures. It was one of the first pagodas built in Vietnam, so look out for the dragons and demons carved into the wooden roof.
