Ho Hoan Kiem is also known as “Lake of the Returned Sword”. According to legend, emperor Lê Lợi received a sword from a giant Turtle God (sometimes called the Golden Turtle God “Kim Qui”.) He used the sword to revolt against the Chinese Ming Dynasty. After his victory, the emperor brought the sword back to this lake. Visitors should also take note of the striking red wooden bridge (The Huc) which never ceases to attract a crowd.
