Why Ngoc Am temple is special ?
Ngoc Am pagoda is 100 years old. It was built at the end of Nguyen dynasty (at the end of the 19th century – beginning of the 20th century) by some merchants, boat owners and Viet people from Ke Cho (an old name of Hanoi). They built the pagoda to pray for their safety while they were travelling. Untill 1900, Tran Gia Du expanded it and the first monk came here.
