It was part of the events marking the 135th anniversary of King Ham Nghi’s delivery of the Can Vuong proclamation calling on heroes and patriots to rise up against the French colonialists to wrest back national independence.
Built in July 2019 at a cost of nearly VND7 billion  (US$302,000), the temple has five compartments and two sub-compartments in an architectural style specific to the Nguyen Dynasty.
Addressing the ceremony, Permanent Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ha Sy Dong asked the authorities and people of Cam Lo district to link the temple with other relic sites to offer attractive tourism products and help turn tourism into a spearhead economic sector in the area.
