ngoc ha temple
Ngoc Ha Temple was named after an old village, Ngoc Ha camp, one of 13 camp in the West of Thang Long (the old capital of Vietnam) formed in Ly Dynasty "Huyen Thien Hac De" deity is worshipped in this temple. Ngoc ha Temple was built to satisfy the customary religious need of worshipping a village deity and also a place for community meeting.
 
Until now no documents concerning the temple's establishment have been found. However, people in the village know that the temple was built a long time ago and as the original structure was destroyed, the present is a replacement.

The date written on the temple shows that it was restored in the 10th Thanh Thai Year (1899). By investigating relics and records kept in the temple, it is estimated that the temple was built at the end of Le Dynasty and be repaired many times in Nguyen Dynasty.
