Temple of Literature – Hanoi

Preeti's Journal

The Temple of Literature is located in Dong Da district of the capital city Hanoi, in northern Vietnam. More than a religious spot, this location was the first national university of Vietnam, named as the Imperial Academy. It is a masterpiece of traditional Vietnamese architecture and was built in 1070. One must appreciate how efficiently the government and the residents have preserved its monuments for over a century.

The students have to go through very tough curriculum in those days as well. Just like your university “Wall of fame”, they too had 116 “Stelae of Doctors”, depicting names and other details of the scholars. They have faded a little bit however.
