Turtle Pagoda is a small lake pagoda located in the southern part of Huanjian. It comes from the legend that the sword was retrieved by the immortals after the victory of Li Taizu. The tower is small and exquisite, with a star at the top. It is said that there are still giant turtles living in the lake, and good luck will come to those who see them.
The turtle pagoda was built in 1884 on Guiqiu Island in the heart of Huanjianhu Lake. It is about 10 meters high. It is a small tower with four-storey spires and four corners. It belongs to a considerable building because no trestle road has been built to reach it. Looking at Turtle Pagoda in the daytime is to see the building, the whole tower is a hollow building, occasionally pigeons take off, the picture is very beautiful; looking at Turtle Pagoda in the evening is to see the mood, shooting lights on the turtle pagoda appears crystal clear. It is said that 600 years ago, before Taizu Lili of the Li Dynasty in Vietnam prepared for the Blue Mountain Uprising, he drew a sword in a green water lake, inscribed with the words Shuntian on it. Ten years later, Li Li Li, who has been called Emperor, took a boat to play on the lake. Suddenly, a turtle appeared on the lake and swam quickly to the cruise ship. Li Li Li took his sword and cut it off. The sword was caught by the tortoise in its mouth, and then the tortoise dived into the water with the sword in it. Li Li ordered the men to dive to the bottom of the water and search for nothing. The tortoise sent his sword to help Li Li get up. After Li Li succeeded in calling himself emperor, the turtle returned to the sword. Since then, the name of Green Water Lake has been changed to Jianhu Lake, and the turtle tower has been built on the island in the center of the lake to commemorate it.
Hanoi is not much to roam around, the 36-lane street is also similar, sat by the lake, turtle tower in the evening, full of food and drink, and the temperature is not low, I feel very comfortable, after all, an ideal is just sitting in the place you like to read, the requirements will not be too high.

The turtle pagoda is situated on Guiqiu Island in the middle of Huanjian Lake. It has no trestle connection, so it can only be seen from afar. It is one of the landmarks in Hanoi. Because Huanjian Lake is very small, the total area around the lake is only 2 kilometers. Therefore, the turtle pagoda can be seen anywhere near Huanjian Lake. During the day, you can see the architectural shape of the turtle tower, while at night, you can see an artistic conception against the light.
