Chuong (or Bell) Pagoda in the Red River Delta province of Hung Yen bears historical values of the land in northern Vietnam.
Located in Nhan Duc commune, Hien Nam ward, Hung Yen city, Chuong Pagoda is part of the Pho Hien – a historical and cultural relic complex that attracts tourists to Hung Yen province.
Legend has it that in a cataclysmic year, a gold bell on a raft floated down the river to the alluvial ground of Nhan Duc Hamlet.
The villagers built a pagoda to hang the bell. Every time the bell was struck, its sound travelled for thousands of miles. Thus the temple is called Chuong (Bell) Pagoda.
