Temple of Literature

The beautiful Temple of Literature in Hanoi is a Confucian temple constructed in 1070. The temple functioned as Vietnam's first university, and it operated for more than 700 years (1076-1779) educating the royality and elite of Vietnamese society. [NOTE: The curriculum was apparently extremely difficult, and only 2,313 students are recorded to have passed the final exam and received their degree, i.e. about 3 students/year].
