    Hai Ba Trung Temple

    The Hai Ba Trung Temple, founded in 1142, is 2km south off-loan Kiem Lake on Pho Tho Lao (see Central Hanoi map).A statue here shows the two Trung sisters (1st century AD) kneeling with their arms raised, as if to address a crowd. Some people say the statue shows the sisters, who had been proclaimed queens of the Vietnamese, about to dive into a river. They are said to have drowned themselves rather than surrender following their defeat at the hands of the Chinese.
