More than one million people have flocked to the Hung Kings Temple in northern Phu Tho province since the start of the Lunar New Year to pay homage to the nation’s legendary founders.

According to the temple management, the number of visitors to the Hung Kings Temple surged during the week-long Lunar New Year holiday thanks to favourable weather conditions.

The temple is a complex of religious buildings dedicated to the Hung Kings and their family, who are considered to be the first rulers of the Vietnamese nation.

The worship of Hung Kings, notably the festival held on the tenth day of the third lunar month, has been recognised by UNESCO as a world heritage.

Management head Luu Quang Huy said that in the past year, renovations have been made to a number of places of worship and courtyards while stalls selling offerings and souvenirs have also been re-arranged for visitors’ convenience.

Many visitors shared a comfortable and solemn mood while visiting the site to offer incense to the Hung Kings. Nguyen Thi Hoa, 67 from Lao Cai province, said she was delighted at the tidy and beautiful scenes in the temple complex.

This year the management also have special officials to guide visitors to follow religious practices in line with national tradition and Government regulations, and to increase their efforts to prevent sellers from overcharging visitors.
