Dinh Bang Village Temple

Dinh Bang village is best known to be the birthplace of Ly Cong Uan- the Great King who first chose Hanoi as the capital in 1010. Dinh Bang village nowadays still retains much of a country side feel, with relics from Ly dynasty. The temple of the village occupies a central position both physically and spiritually in villagers’ mind. Its architecture reflects typical model of Northern Vietnam pagoda, with Lim wood being used as the main material and no color is added. The temple honours God of Land, God of Water and God of Farm. It is a place where village residents come to show their respect to these Gods, as well as praying for a new fruitful crop.
