Introduce One Pillar Pagoda Hanoi

Closeby the impressive presidential palace is a meaningful heritage of Ha Noi. It appears somewhat wondrous but likes a small fine gem: The One Pillar Pagoda. The pagoda has other names that fewer people know "Quan Am" and "Dien Huu". Quan Am is the goddess of mercy. According to the legend, the goddess Quan Am appeared to King Ly Thai Tong (1000 - 1054) in a dream.

The king was already old and still childless and was seeking a successor. In a dream, Quan Am handed him a son while seated on a lotus flower. The king then took a farmer girl as a concubine and had a son with her, who is the long-desired successor to the throne forecasted by the goddess. With deep gratitude, in 1049, Ly Thai Tong built the One Pillar Pagoda in Hanoi in honors of the goddess of mercy. As the name suggests, the pagoda stands on one pillar in the middle of an artificial square lake. In the season, the lake will be covered by lotus flowers. The pagoda itself is wooden and about nine square meters.

Inside the pagoda resides a statue of god Quan Am. In the course of its 1000 year history, this pagoda was destroyed and then rebuilt many times. The French occupation army last destroyed it shortly before quitting Viet Nam. In 1955, it was again reconstructed, in which unfortunately a concrete pillar replaced the original wooden pillar. However, it could be seen as the pragmatic attempt of Vietnamese residents to connect the tradition with modernity. Whether concrete or wood, the statue of Quan Am will continue to be admired here as a child-bringing goddess. This delicate pagoda is worth a visit among Hanoi interesting places anyway.
