    Hoan Kiem Lake is in the historical center of Hanoi. According to the legend, Emperor Le Loi was boating on the lake when a Golden Turtle God (Kim Qui) surfaced and asked for his magic sword, Heaven's Will. Loi concluded that Kim Qui had come to reclaim the sword that it’s master, the Dragon King (Long Vuong) had given Loi some time earlier, during his revolt against the Chinese Ming Dynasty. Loi renamed the lake to commemorate this event. He renamed the lake from Luc Thuy (Green Water") to Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of the Restored Sword). The Turtle Tower (Thap Rua) standing on a small island near the centre of lake is linked to the legend.
