Thai Binh (VNA) – A ceremony was held on January 21 by the People’s Committee of Hung Ha district in the northern province of Thai Binh to mark the 790th founding anniversary of the Tran Dynasty (1225-1440), which falls on the twelfth day of the twelfth lunar month.

The event, the first of its kind, drew in representatives from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism; local authorities; the Tran family; and crowds of domestic and international tourists.

Addressing the event, Chairman of the District People’s Committee Vu Tien Khoai said the event aims to recall, honour and uphold the tradition and its values among the people who live where the Tran Dynasty was founded.

He also highlighted the role and the significant contributions the Tran Dynasty has made to the course of history, in terms of the nation’s defence, development and prosperity.

Over the past years, the Party Committee and the people of the district have held events to honour cultural heritage of the Tran Dynasty.

In 1989, the Tam Duong hamlet in Tien Duc commune, Hung Ha district was recognised as a national archaeological relic site.

The Tran Temple Festival was recognised as national intangible heritage in 2014, and the Temples and Tombs of Kings of the Tran Dynasty as special national cultural heritage in 2015.
