Xem anh phong to
Foreign ambassadors to Vietnam are helped to gain more understanding about the host country’s Buddhism and culture through a visit to the Phat Tich Pagoda in the northern province of Bac Ninh on February 26.

In the trip, the ambassadors were accompanied by their spouses, diplomats, and representatives from international and non-governmental organisations.

The Phat Tich (Buddha’s Trace) Pagoda, built under the Ly Dynasty (1010-1225), is the only one in the country that reserved a space for exhibiting documents and relics featuring Buddhist culture.

It is also famed for housing valuable Buddhist relics and distinctive sculptural works, especially the giant statue of Buddha Amitabha, which is a typical example of Vietnam’s traditional sculpture.

During the visit, the diplomats and their entourage enjoyed performances of Quan Ho (love duet singing), which has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the world’s intangible cultural heritage.

President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations Vu Xuan Hong said the visit is an annual activity that looks to help foreign friends understand more about Vietnam’s culture and history, thus promoting friendship and mutual understanding between Vietnam and other countries worldwide.
