Directions to Hoan Kiem Lake

The name Hoan Kiem, which means Restored Sword, came from a story about a giant golden turtle. The turtle is said to have grabbed the sword and disappeared with it. The turtle then restored the sword to its divine owner. The ancient tale says that King Le Loi received this magical sword with two words on it, 'Thuan Thien' meaning 'in harmony with the universe,' as a gift from heaven. This sword is said to have helped him win the China war. 

If you wake up early enough, between 5 and 6 A.M., the area is very lively with scenes of people practicing Tai Chi and doing all kinds of exercises along the lake. There is a little temple called Ngoc Son that is located on a small island in Hoan Kiem Lake. Hoan Kiem Lake, with this temple, the Turtle Tower and The Huc Red Bridge, is an iconic spot of pride in Hanoi.
