As one of the spiritual attractions in Ninh Binh, the temple was built in "Nhi" (Two) letter-style in the kanji consisting of two adjacent buildings. The outside building includes 3 compartments with small scale. The center compartment is the largest among them. The roof was vaulted with concrete dome, yet the green stones were used for paving the ceiling instead. The center of the roof was decorated with 2 dragons reaching each other. It is also relatively familiar architecture of the temples in Ninh Binh and Vietnam temples as well. The carvings in Tran Temple are extremely sophisticated and highly aesthetic.

The outside building has no doors but 2 rows of stone pillars. The first row consists of 4 pillars made of monolithic green stones. Outer surface of the pillar are embossed with themes of dragons, clouds, waves, carp turning into dragon, lion and stylized flowers. Hand sides of these 4 pillars are decorated with two parallel sentences carved into the shafts. The second row is also made of monolithic green stones. Two pillars in the outer position are decorated with the dragon and theme of styled-flowers. The other in the middle are decorated with 2 parallel sentences. These carvings retain high aesthetics. The unique architectural features contribute to promote Tran Temple to become one of the fascinating Ninh Binh attractions. This will definitely be one of the unforgettable experiences in the journey of exploring Ninh Binh travel to tourists
