Hero Nguyen Trung Truc’s temple inaugurated

A temple to commemorate hero Nguyen Trung Truc (1839-68) was inaugurated on Sunday in Vinh Hoi hamlet of Cat Hai commune, Phu Cat district, after 5 months of construction.

Delegates are cutting the ribbon, inaugurating Nguyen Trung Truc's temple.

The 1.2 hectare-temple, located in his hometown, was designed with traditional architectural features. Artefacts and objects displayed throughout the house paint a vivid picture of history and allow visitors to gain an insight into this important figure who was renowned for his spirited patriotism

Speaking at the ceremony, Binh Dinh’s Chairman Ho Quoc Dung Truc honoured the hero's personality and career as a leader of many uprisings against the French invaders, in the south of Vietnam. When the French sentenced him to death, his last words "if the French eradicated all grass on our land then we, Vietnamese people, would stop fighting against them" have been immortalised in Vietnam's history.
