Relic site in Bac Giang evokes visitors’ patriotism
Update: 15:40 |
The battle of Chi Lang-Xuong Giang in 1427 was a decisive milestone marking the victory of Dai Viet (now Vietnam) under King Le Loi’s command against invaders from the North of the country, the Ming dynasty.
Xuong Giang was once an important terracotta stronghold for the Ming dynasty’s army in the early 1400s. Due to its strategic location, it was carefully covered by four fortresses.

In order to occupy this location, Le Loi and his troop fought relentlessly for days following sophisticated strategies enforced by their commander.
To commemorate ancient heroes and educate younger generations on patriotism, Xuong Giang temple was built by Bac Giang provincial People’s Committee in 2012 next to the vestiges of the Xuong Giang stronghold. The temple covers an area of 10 hectares, with several functional buildings, including a shrine, an exhibition house and a cultural palace.
Following the recognition, local authorities, relevant agencies and people are expected to uphold the preservation of the relic site in order to promote local tourism and educate youngsters about patriotism.
The Southern Institute of Social Sciences’ Centre for Archeological Studies has recently discovered vestiges of an ancient temple architecture dating back to over 1,000 years ago at Ben Dinh historical and cultural relic site in Ben Cau district, the southwestern province of Tay Ninh.
Historical and cultural relic sites as wells as tourist destinations in Hanoi will be closed to visitors and cultural activities at those sites suspended as part of the capital city’s preventive measures against the threat of the novel coronavirus (nCoV).
