The Chua Quan Su Pagoda, or "Ambassador Pagoda" has its origins in the 15th century when a hall was built to welcome ambassadors who came to visit the king. Soon after a pagoda was built, the Ambassador's Pagoda. The hall was destroyed in a blaze, but the pagoda survived. Nowadays this is one of the most active pagodas in Hanoi, and it is the headquarters for the Vietnam Buddhist Association. Dozens of young monks reside in the complex and study in its classrooms.
