VTV.vn-The People’s Committee of Bac Tu Liem District held a ceremony to celebrate Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day and to review the district’s heritage management in Hanoi on Nov 21. Bac Tu Liem District has 130 heritages and 27 traditional festivals.

For the past few years, it has actively raised awareness about the values of those heritages, and restored many of them. The district also labeled 3 heritage trees at Soc Temple in Xuan Tao Ward, and constructed files on Đinh Chem and Boi Dam festivals to propose that they be recognised as a National Intangible Cultural Heritage.

On the occasion, the Hanoi municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism also organised the ‘Viet Nam Intangible Cultural Heritages and Young Ambassadors Festival’ featuring five performances of Ca tru (ceremonial singing), Trong quan singing (a unique art form in Bac Ninh province), Cheo (traditional opera), Xoan singing and Quan ho (love duet singing).

The seven-day event aims to convey a message that national cultural heritages hold tremendous significance, evidenced by the inheritance of younger generations.

The Thang Long - Hanoi Cultural Heritage Association also held a festival at So Thuong temple in Yen So ward, Hoang Mai district, for 17 rituals performing and incense offering teams around the capital to meet and make exchanges.

Notably, a range of other unique cultural activities began on the same day at four locations in Hanoi’s Old Quarter to mark Viet Nam’s Cultural Heritage Day.
