The Ba Chua Xu (Holy Mother of the Realm) Temple on Sam Mountain in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang has been recognised as an “Exemplary Spiritual Tourist Destination in Asia - Pacific” by the Vietnam - India Economic and Cultural Exchange Forum.

Ba Chua Xu Temple is a historical relic site and also a beautiful architectural structure in An Giang province.

The Ba Chua Xu Temple on Sam Mountain was honoured for its substantive contributions to tourism development in Vietnam, helping popularising the country’s culture to international friends, he noted.

The temple is a historical relic site and also a beautiful architectural structure located at the foot of Sam Mountain in Nui Sam ward of Chau Doc city, An Giang province. It is a famous and must-visit destination for both domestic and foreign visitors. One of its identities is the traditional festival held from the 23rd to 27th days of the fourth lunar month each year.

The latest recognition is an important milestone in the efforts to have the temple’s festival named in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, he added.

In 2022, the Vietnamese Government submitted a dossier to UNESCO to seek the inclusion of the Ba Chua Xua Temple Festival in the list.
