Ancient Chuong pagoda

Last update 23:26 | 17/12/2017

Chuong (Bell) pagoda in Nhan Duc village, Hung Yen province, guards a number of precious historical relics. It is part of the Pho Hien Special National Relic Site.

Built in the 15th century, Chuong pagoda has been upgraded twice, in 1702 and in 1711.

Tour guide Nguyen Thu Lien explains why the pagoda is often called Golden Bell Pagoda: “Legends say that in a huge flood thousands of years ago, a wood plank drifted to the region carrying a golden bell. Nhan Duc residents tried to bring the bell ashore but it wouldn’t move. When the monks of the pagoda came, they managed to bring the bell to the pagoda.” Tiếp tục đọc “Ancient Chuong pagoda”
