Hundreds of Buddhist antiques which have been stored in a temple in Da Nang City for many years will be exhibited to the public on December 24 for the first time.
The municipal People’s Committee decided to establish the Buddhist Cultural Museum as a place to display the antiques in the Quan The Am Temple, Ngu Hanh Son District, by the end of 2014. This is the first Buddhist Culture Museum in Viet Nam.
Huynh Dinh Quoc Thien, deputy director of the Da Nang Museum, said they accidentally discovered a “treasure-house” of about 500 objects, with more than 200 antiques which were assessed at the Quan The Am Temple.
“We sent experts to study this large number of antiques with assistance from the temple’s monks,” said Thien.
