HANOI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday visited the Quan Su Pagoda, also known as the Ambassadors' Pagoda here.

"At the heart of the Vietnamese Buddhism, a precious treasure of Hanoi. PM @narendramodi visits Quan Su Pagoda," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

The historic monument is also known as the Ambassadors' Pagoda as there was a guest house here in the 17th century for the ambassadors of Buddhist countries.

Earlier on Saturday, Modi and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc held delegation-level talks following which the two sides signed 12 agreements.

Prime Minister Phuc also hosted Modi for a luncheon banquet.
