Xem anh phong to
Quang Cung Temple in northern Nam Dinh province that worships Mother Goddess Lieu Hanh, one of four immortals in Vietnamese folklore , has been recognised as part of the nation’s cultural historical heritage.

The honour was presented by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism at a ceremony on April 11.

Located in Yen Dong commune, Y Yen district, the temple was built on the foundations of Lieu Hanh’s house, where she is said to have been reborn.

As the legend goes, Lieu Hanh’s first descent to earth was on the sixth day of the third lunar month of Giap Dan (1434) under the reign of King Le Thai Tong. In Quy Ty (1473), she returned to Heaven.

Local people established the temple to express their gratitude to the Mother’s great contributions.

In 1973, local people dismantled the temple, which was damaged by time and wars, and used its materials for social welfare establishments.

With the support of local authorities and contributions from people across the country, the temple was restored on the original base in 1994.

Of all Mother Goddess Lieu Hanh statues, the statue in Quang Cung Temple is said to be the most special.
