HA NOI (VNS) — Several activities will be held to celebrate the 2,000th birthday of the national heroines Hai Ba Trung (literally "the two ladies Trung"), who led the first resistance movement against Chinese occupation in the first century.

Known as Trung Trac and Trung Nhi, the two sisters led their troops on elephant back to repel Chinese invasions for three years. Their victory brought the liberation for Dai Viet (an old name for Viet Nam) after 247 years of Chinese domination.

From August 22 to 24, the celebration will be held at the Hai Ba Trung Temple in Ha Noi's Me Linh district, featuring an incense offering ceremony and a workshop promoting the historical values of the sisters' victory.

Artists from the Ha Noi Cheo Opera Theatre will stage a special art performance entitled 2,000 Nam Vuong Nu Dat Rong (Queens of the Dragon Land) on August 23.

The agenda will also include an exhibition by the Vietnamese Women's Museum. — VNS
