DA NANG (VNS)— The central city's museum received ancient Buddha statues, along with a variety of 17th-19th century artifacts from an individual donor yesterday.
The donation, which includes 17th-19th century Buddha statues, four conferral titles and one ordinance from the Nguyen dynasty, was contributed by Venerable Thich Minh Tong from Hoa Binh Province.
Last month, 60 antiquities, dating from the 14th through 19th centuries, were also donated to the museum as part of a donation programme to mark Viet Nam's Heritage Day.
The museum features more than 2,500 exhibits in a 3,000sq.m exhibition area. – VNS
