Other local temples include the impressive Temple of Literature and Bach Ma Temple, and the imposing neo-Gothic St. Joseph’s Cathedral. The Hoa Lo Prison is now a museum, offering insights into French colonialism in Vietnam. See the embalmed remains of Vietnam’s great leader at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. There are several excellent museums in Hanoi too, such as the Ho Chi Minh Museum, the Fine Arts Museum, and the Vietnam Military History Museum. Watching a water puppetry performance is a great way to enjoy the local culture.
