Ha Noi Diary
My friend J is visiting Ha Noi for a month. I get frequent e-mails from him about his daily experiences. Very interesting accounts. Here's one such about the Tran Quoc Pagoda:
Tran Quoc Pagoda
Tran Quoc Pagoda is another interesting and one of the most beautiful pagodas near the city. This pagoda has two parts. One is the usual pagoda with a few local gods and the other one has Buddha. Near to Buddha's pagoda, I saw something very interesting. There are some pictures from India. They have kept those there to describe the life of Buddha. Most of the photos have captions. One photo has Krishna and Yashoda, but its caption reads: "Prince Siddhartha was tenderly pampered."
