Đống Đa District

Đống Đa District

Đống Đa (literally Banyan Heap) is one of the four original urban districts (quận) of Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam. The district is named after the Đống Đa Mound, where the Battle of Ngọc Hồi-Đống Đa between Tây-Sơn and the Manchu Qing army ended. It is also home to the Temple of Literature (Văn Miếu), a cultural symbol of the city.
