The religious complex includes Hai Ba Trung temple, Dong Nhan shrine and Vien Minh pagoda.

The temple is home to many valuable artefacts such as 27 royal decrees dating back to the Le Dynasty (1428-1788) and the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945), eight statues, two stone steles, and two palanquins dating back to the Nguyen dynasty.

Meanwhile, the Vien Minh pagoda houses an ancient stele carved in 1932 and 72 worshipping statues dating back to the Nguyen dynasty. The Dong Nhan shrine is in tribute to the water deities who protect people living along rivers.

The complex is one of a few of its kind in Vietnam where typical architectural, cultural and religious features are well preserved and have remained intact despite the tests of time.

Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Ngo Van Quy described the complex as a time-honoured cultural heritage of the capital city.

He asked the Hai Ba Trung district authorities to improve its management of the relic and continue popularising the site’s cultural and historical value in order to attract more visitors.
