Though the two temples have the same architectural style, Le temple looks smaller. Three parts of the temple are the shrine at the front, Thien Huong House in the middle, and King Le’ worshiping sanctum. Both temples indicate the gratitude and respect of Vietnamese people for their greatest kings who greatly contributed and paid great efforts to the protection, construction, and development of the nation.
