Duc Thanh Nguyen Temple
Duc Thanh Nguyen Temple is an ancient temple in Gia Tien and Gia Thang Communes, Gia Vien District, Ninh Binh Province. The temple is a place for worshipping Nguyen Minh Khong, the celebrity born on this land under Ly dynasty.
The temple was built on the foundation of the temple named Vien Quang, founded by Nguyen Minh Khong in 1121. The temple is considered as a relic of "Hoa Lu 4 guardians", built in "Noi cong ngoai quoc" (Internal attack with outside support) style, including Vong Lau with a stone lamp height of more than one meter, 5 rooms of Tien Duong, and the Chinh Tam, an ironwood two-story bell tower with eight roofs. The bell tower hung a bell weighing more than 1 ton, 1.6 meters high.
The Duc Thanh Nguyen Temple Festival takes place from the 8th to 10th of the third lunar month. This is a chance for local people to express their gratitude to Nguyen Minh Khong. There are many interesting and attractive folk games during the festival.
The monument of Duc Thanh Nguyen Temple was recognised as a relic of art architecture by the Ministry of Culture and Information in 1989.
