At One Pillar Pagoda, Hanoi – Today I bring you to see One Pillar Pagoda, an iconic temple in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh District, Vietnam. A wooden structure built in 1049 that sits on stilts over a lake.

A king of the Ly Dynasty, Ly Thai Thong King had it built after having a dream in which Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the goddess of mercy, presented him with a lotus flower.

The existing pagoda is a miniature reproduction of the original, which was said to represent a lotus emerging from the water.

Life is gooooooood. Love and peace!
