11th century Bach Ma Temple is Hanoi’s oldest place of worship and is easily visited while strolling through the Old Quarter. Bach Ma  or White Horse Temple was dedicated by King Ly Thai To, the city’s founder, in the 11th century. Much of the present structure dates from the 18th century and significant restoration has taken place during the past decade. Bach Ma is beautifully decorated and remains in active use.
