Kiep Bac Temple lies in a small valley of Dragon mountain of Hai Dương province surrounded by splendid scenery.

In the old time, Kiep Bac temple was on the main transportation route to the Thang Long Imperial Citadel.

After his first battle against Mongol invaders in 1258, General Tran Hung Dao based his Command Center here and fought off the Mongols who attempted twice again to invade Vietnam from the northeast in 1285 and 1288.

After his death, local people set up a temple dedicated to Tran Hung Dao to show their gratitude for his great contribution to the nation./.
