Xem anh phong to
A festival commemorating national hero General Tran Hung Dao was held in northern Thai Binh province on March 10.

Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan and Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Uong Chu Luu attended the event.

The four-day festival features a number of traditional rituals and folk games, including wrestling, chess, and phao dat (clay fire-cracker).

Also on the day was an inaugural ceremony for the A Sao temple relic site which is historically associated with the Tran Dynasty (1225-1400) as well as the country’s three victorious struggles against the mighty Mongolian empire.

A Sao temple was recognised as a national historical and cultural relic site in 2012. Around 40 billion VND (1.89 million USD) were invested in restoring the temple and upgrading its surrounding landscape in the year.

General Tran Hung Dao, the Supreme Commander of Viet Nam during the Tran Dynasty, commanded the Dai Viet army to repel the Mongol invasions in 1258, 1285 and 1288.

The General’s triple victories are considered among the greatest military feats in world history and the commander is regarded as one of the most accomplished military tacticians in history.
