Located to the south of Chung Mountain, the ancestral temple is constructed on a ground of 83.63 hectares.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, PM Phuc hailed Nam Dan as a land with cultural and historical richness where many extraordinary and noble people were born. He asked local young people to preserve and uphold the academic tradition of their forebears.

The temple symbolises a popular Vietnamese saying “When you drink water, remember the source,” the PM said, adding that it will serve as a historical place for people to pay tribute and show gratitude towards President Ho Chi Minh and his ancestors for their contributions to the nation.
