Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi
The Hoan Kiem Lake is freshwater lake covering an area of approximately 12 hectares in Hanoi’s Old Town area. The lake and the small park around are icons features of Hanoi and one Vietnam’s major tourist attractions. The lake has two islands, both with historic structures built upon them. The largest of the two islands is the Jade Island, which you can visit via the famous red Huc Bridge. The Jade Island is entirely taken up by a Taoist Temple, Ngoc Son Temple, which was built in 1841. The other smaller island in the lake, which is inaccessible except by boat, has a 4 level ornamental tower called Turtle Tower.
The Vietnamese name Hoan Kiem roughly translated means ‘Lake of the Restored Sword’. The legend is that in 1428 the Emperor Loi Le was given a piece of metal which had been found in the lake, which he had made into a sword. Emperor Loi Le went on to use that sword in a battle against the Chinese that the Vietnamese forces won. After the battle a turtle in the lake asked the Emperor to return the sword to the lake to be given back to the Dragon King, which he did. According to legend the Emperor ordered that the lake become known as the ‘Lake of the Restored Sword’ from that day onward.
