In 40 A.D two sisters, Trung Trac and Trung Nhi, led an uprising to drive out the Han invaders and recover national independence. Subsequently, Trung Trac ascended the throne, with Me Linh (Vinh Phuc province) being the capital.

Numerous temples were built to be dedicated to the two Trung Sisters. The temple in Hanoi has a relatively big size and has been preserved until today.

In 1142, it was located in the 136 C3i Ward, south of Thang Long royal capital (nowadays Dong Nhan area). Because of frequent flooding, it was removed in 1891 (later U dynasty) to the site of the Royal Military Academy. The temple’s layout follows the “noi cong ngoai quoc” pattern.
