History

The V?n Mi?u Xích ng received its name because it was built in the Xích ng village. The Confucius temple was established in 1831 in the H?ng Yên province. It began construction from the seventeenth century, and was restored and embellished by the Nguy?n emperor, Minh M?ng. Remnants of the temple still remain today which consists of two buildings known as Phng Trng Tower and T?nh Mãn Tower.

Festivals and holidays

Two traditional temple festival seasons were used to be held on October 2 and October 8, which are known as lunar calendar dates. The temple organizes cultural activities on the first day of spring, such as worship ceremonies, offering incense, calligraphy exhibitions, ca tru singing, which altogether gradually restores the ancient festival. In the second day of the Lunar New Year, calligraphy exhibits are high on demand in the Xích ng Confucius Temple festival, similar to that of the V?n Mi?u in Hanoi.
