Monday Moment: Ngoc Son Temple, Hanoi, Vietnam

Monday Moment, Vietnam

Ngoc Son Temple, Hanoi

This small shrine sits just beside the much more picturesque Ngoc Son temple on Hoan Kem Lake in Hanoi. While the temple justifiably receives much attention from visitors, tourists, and strangely, brides having their photos taken in elaborate get-ups, this shrine received a fair amount of attention from locals who burned money at the base presumably looking for good fortune and wealth.
