Dien Huu Pagoda

dien huu pagoda is not one pillar pagoda

vietnam tour

Dien Huu Pagoda is situated near One Pillar Pagoda. It is often overlooked by most of tourists.

Dien Huu means long lasting happiness and good luck. Exactly, Dien Huu was the name for One Pillar pagoda, but probably the special architecture of this pagoda has made Vietnamese call it as its architecture feature: "One Pillar" pagoda.

As we have known, Ly Thai Tong king decided to build One Pillar pagoda to thank the Goddess of Mercy after his wife gave the birth to a son. As you can see, One Pillar pagoda is so small like a lotus flower in the King's dream. In order to take care this pagoda, another pagoda was built to create favorable conditions for the local people to worship and pray and This pagoda has taken the name Dien Huu pagoda since then (this information based on the stele of One Pillar pagoda). For any reasons, nowadays, Dien Huu pagoda and One Pillar pagoda are one of the highlights of Hanoi.
