More than one million of visitors from across the country visited the Hung Kings Temple historical site in the northern province of Phu Tho during the Lunar New Year festival (Tet).
It has become a tradition for the Vietnamese people to express their gratitude to the Hung Kings, the legendary founders of the nation at the beginning of the year.
On the occasion, about 10,000 -15,000 visitors arrived in the site every day to respectfully commemorate the Hung Kings.
According to the site’s Director Nguyen Xuan Cac, some temples such as Ha Temple and Gieng Temple in the site were improved to provide better services to tourists.
Several other works in the site are expected to be completed soon in order to celebrate Hung Kings Temple Festival in 2012, which falls on March 10 in the lunar calendar, or March 31 in the modern calendar this year.
