Tây Phương Temple
01 Jan 1970 - 01 Jan 1970 | Ha Noi

First constructed in 1554, the Tay Phuong temple plays host to a spiritual festival each year during early spring. The centrepiece of the festival is called Sam Hoi, which calls on everyone to practise compassion and charity to avoid any possible wrongdoing that may disrupt a souls’ serenity. In addition, numerous forms of lively entertainment take place including marionette performance, a tug-o-war and cock fighting.
