My first sketch in Vietnam – Entrance to Tran Quoc Pagoda in Hanoi. It is the oldest pagoda in Hanoi and dates back to the 6th century. On the grounds of Tran Quoc is a Bodhi Tree taken as cutting of the original tree in Bodh Gaya , India under which the Buddha sat and achieved enlightenment. The gift was made in 1959, marking the visit of the Indian president.
