Xuong Giang was once an important teracotta stronghold for the Ming dynasty’s army in the early 1400s. Due to its strategic location, it was carefully covered by four fortresses.

In order to occupy this location, Le Loi and his troop fought relentlessly for days following sophisticated strategies enforced by their commander.

To commenmorate ancient heroes and educate younger generations on patriotism, Xuong Giang temple was built by Bac Giang provincial People’s Committee in 2012 next to the vestiges of the Xuong Giang stronghold. The temple covers an area of 10 hectares, with several functional builldings, including a shrine, an exhibition house and a cultural palace.

Following the recognition, local authorties, revelant agencies and people are expected to uphold the preservation of the relic site in order to promote local tourism and educate youngsters about patriotism./.
