Ancient temple in Hanoi to be restored

Updated at Saturday, 04 Oct 2014, 08:44
The Hanoitimes - Ba Kieu temple in Hanoi will receive VND 23.2 billion (nearly US$1.1 million) from the city’s budget for a restoration project.
The project will undergo restoration during the 2015 -2016 period to consolidate the temple’s foundations, re-render its surface, replace the roof and restore original decorative patterns.
The project is part of the Hanoi city authorities’ effort to safeguard downgraded historical, cultural, religious, architectural and artistic constructions of the capital whose value were recognised by the State.
Located across from the Ngoc Son temple, in Dinh Tien Hoang street, Hoan Kiem district, Ba Kieu temple was built under the reign of King Le Than Tong (1619 -1628) to worship Mother Goddess Lieu Hanh and princesses Quynh Hoa and Que Hoa.
It was acknowledged as a cultural and historical vestige in 1994.
