Since the Le dynasty, a group of dwellings called Quan Su, Residences For Royal Envoys, were built here to accomadate envoys from Laos, Champa, China and other places when they arrived at Thang Long (Hanoi). Next to the dwellings was a Buddhist temple, where the envoys could pray, hence the temple waqs called the Quan Su.

The Chua Quan Su was built in the 17th century. Since 1934, the Vietnam Buddhism Association has used this pagoda as its head office.
