Ha Tinh (VNA) – A temple named Truc Lam Dai Giac in Nghi Xuan district, the central province of Ha Tinh, a place for worshipping Tran Dynasty’s kings and generals, was inaugurated at a ceremony on January 3.

The event was attended by National Assembly Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu, provincial leaders, representatives from the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) and a crowd of Buddhist monks and nuns.

The construction of the temple was started in April, 2014 on an area of 5,000 sq.m in Xuan Pho Commune.

The cost for the project - 120 billion VND (533,520 USD) - was funded by the General Director of Thanh Thanh Dat company, Tran Cong Luan, who was born in Ha Tinh.

The temple includes three sanctums for worshiping the Three Refuges, Tran Dynasty’s kings and generals and the Tran family in the central region.

The project is expected to provide a venue for local people to show respect for their ancestors. It also serves as a spiritual tourist site for Buddhist monks, nuns, and followers.-VNA
