It would have been an incomplete trip if I didn’t head to Bai Dinh, the biggest complex of Buddhist temples in the Ninh Binh Province in Northern Vietnam. The architecture is very traditional which can be seen in the design pattern followed on the outside as well as the interiors. The intricate interior work full of wood carpentry, stone work and embroidery is said to be selected from local handicraft communities. You can spend hours appreciating the magnificence of this place. When you exit you will be won over by its tranquility. The temple has a new complex which includes many structures built over 7 years. The old temple is located in small caves below the new temple along the mountain. You have to climb up a series of stone steps to reach it.
