Ngày đăng: 15/07/2016 .

One Pillar Pagoda is the unique pagoda is located in the western part of the city, near Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, Ong Ich Khiem st, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi. It owns unique architectural structure with a square structure lying on a stone pillar. It is distinctive architecture that gives the pagoda become one of the fascinating tourist attractions 

Floating above the lake consists of a system of wooden slats forming the solid structure firmly supporting the pagoda, which looks like a lotus flower raising straight up from the lake. Pagoda started its construction in October (lunar calendar), 1049 under King Ly Thai Tong. 
In 1106, King Ly Nhan Tong renovated and expanded the pagoda to become a large architectural complex with Linh Chieu Lake added and a gilded lotus throne atop. Inside the lotus throne is purple shrine with sacred bird imagery in the roof. There is a gilded statue of Buddha Avalokiteshvara inside.

As one of historical sites  and impressive Hanoi attractions, it is also a symbol of wisdom, of longevity, and of salvation through fully intellectual awareness. Unlike any Buddhist stupas, One Pillar Pagoda deeply bears humanist philosophy with the square-shaped outer representing the yin, and the circle-shaped column representing the yang. Its beauty not only seems quaint majesty, but also hides elegant and gentle demeanor of the Buddha realm.
