One Pillar Pagoda

The One Pillar Pagoda is an architectural delight just outside the Ho Chi Minh Museum complex.  It is a Buddhist temple built in the 11th century by Emperor Ly Thai Tong after he was handed a baby on a lotus flower by a bodhisattva.  Apparently, he married a peasant girl, then erected the pagoda in the middle of a lotus pond.
