The Hoan Kiem Lake was also known as the green lake, as evident in the green waters.
The “The Huc Bridge” is the red coloured bridge that spans the shore with the Jade Island.
This lake pays tribute to 2 Vietnamese heroes, Le Loi, the emperor who defeated the Ming Dynasty, and Tran Hung Dao, the general who turned back the Yuan Dynasty army. The Jade Island has a shrine which commemorates the latter.
