Speaking at the event, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, Hoang Dan Mac, praised the achievements the officers and workers at the historical site have made over the past 50 years.
He asked the site’s management board to promote the Hung Kings temple and worship ritual to the public, and beautify the site, focusing on protecting the environment, ecosystems and biological diversity of the National Hung Kings Forest.
The management board should also co-operate with the board compiling the dossier on the ‘Hung Kings worship ritual in Phu Tho province’ aiming to gain UNESCO recognition as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, he added.
Over the past 50 years, temple staff have worked closely with relevant sectors to protect and preserve both the site and the National Hung Kings Temple Forest.
The site has welcomed many delegations from the Party, State and central agencies as well as local and foreign visitors to pay tribute to the Hung Kings.
The management board has also contributed to preparing and organising the annual Hung Kings Death Anniversary and Temple Festival and produced documentaries on folk culture in the ancestral land to supplement the scientific and historical documents on the Hung Kings temple and the era of the Hung Kings.
