The Hanoi tour is only available from April 18th to 20th 2019 as a thousand pilgrims return to this religious site to pay their tribute and respect to these national heroes of Vietnam every year from the 14th to 16th of the third lunar month.
The famous temple of Do, located just 25 km northeast of Hanoi, belongs to Dinh Bang village – an area known as a religious and cultural center of Red River Delta. It is a sacred place dedicated to worshipping the first eight emperors of the Ly dynasty – the great Viet kingdom dating back nearly a thousand years.
The architecture reflects the typical model of Northern Vietnam temples, surrounded by a green area covered in trees and fresh air. There will be a great chance to enjoy a typical festival of Northern Vietnam, with a procession ceremony, fighting chicken, wresting, dragon dance, traditional Quan Ho performance and Rice cooking contest.
