Work started on July 6 to rebuild Thuy Trung Tien temple on a small hill lock in the Truc Back lake, west of Hanoi, and build a stone bridge linking Thanh Nien road and the island.

The project is expected to cost 19 billion VND (905,000 USD) and was approved by the Ba Dinh District People’s Committee in 2011.

The temple, built in the Ly Dynasty (11th century) is among landscapes and historical sites in Hanoi.-VNA
