Temple Of Literature, constructed in 1070 under Ly Thanh Tong’s dynasty, can be found about ten minutes away from Hoan Kiem lake. The temple is one of the oldest sights in Hanoi and is dedicated to the Chinese philosopher Confucius (Khong Tu). Six year later, it was founded as Vietnam's first university. The building itself is extremely well preserved and is a beautiful example of traditional-style Vietnamese architecture.
