HAI DUONG (VNS) — Mao Dien Literature Temple will receive about VND19 billion (US$850,000) from northern Hai Duong province's budget for a two-year restoration project.
The temple is the second largest Literature Temple in Viet Nam, after the temple in Ha Noi. The restoration aims to improve the site for hosting spiritual ceremonies and festivals. Infrastructure including the management board's office, roads, parking lots and the drainage system will be upgraded and a stone embankment will be built.
Over more than 500 years, worshippers have come to pay homage to Confucius as well as 600 doctors from Hai Duong Province. Outstanding Confucian scholars were also honoured there. — VNS
