Called "Lake of the Returned Sword", Hoan Kiem Lake is believed to be the final resting place of a legendary blade and the home of a rare tortoise specimen. In and around Hoan Kiem Lake you can find the solitary Turtle Tower, the crimson Huc Bridge and the revered Ngoc Son Temple (Temple of the Jade Mountain). The 19th-century Ngoc Son Temple, in particular, provides a window to the Vietnamese belief system, combining both ancestor worship and Buddhist practices.
