Hanoi’s leaders pay tribute to ancestors on Tet
Paying tribute to ancestors is a long-lasting tradition in Vietnam in the biggest national holiday.
Hanoi’s leaders today [January 21] paid tribute to ancestors and President Ho Chi Minh on the last day of the lunar year as part of Vietnam’s tradition every Tet (the Lunar New Year).
The delegation includes Dinh Tien Dung, a member of the Politburo – the country’s most powerful body and Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee; Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Nguyen Thi Tuyen; Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Tran Sy Thanh; Chairman of the municipal People’s Council Nguyen Ngoc Tuan.
The city’s leaders attended incense offering ceremonies at the Monument of King Ly Thai To who relocated Vietnam’s capital city to Hanoi in 1010; the Monument of King Le Thai To – a military leader who restored the kingdom of Dai Viet after it was conquered by the Ming dynasty and founded the Later Le dynasty (1428); Ngoc Son Temple, built in commemoration of Tran Hung Dao, the greatest military commander of Vietnam; and Kinh Thien Palace at UNESCO-recognized Thang Long Imperial Citadel.
The ceremonies are aimed to commemorate the merits of the ancestors in the construction and protection of the thousand-year-old Hanoi and Vietnam in general.
