NDO – An exhibition, themed “The worship of Mother Goddesses in Hue" opened at the Hue Cultural Museum, in Hue city, on August 2.

On display are photos, objects, costumes and musical instruments; the voices and experiences of insiders, which generalize the belief in Hue under a cultural perspective.

The event will help visitors get a more clear understanding about traditional values in the diverse and unique spiritual life of people in the ancient capital, contributing to preserving and promoting good values of the belief.

According to Nguyen Hong Hoa Tranh, Director of the museum, the Mother Goddess worshipping is one of the indigenous folk beliefs with a long history and adaptation to the changes of the society.

The Mother Goddess worshipping, which was officially recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity in late 2016, is a traditional practice in Vietnam with a long history, having stood the test of social changes. The belief reflects people’s desire for health, wealth and fortune.

The exhibition will run until November 2.
