Speaking at the event, Minister of Finance Dinh Tien Dung stated that the temple reflects the gratitude of the Party, State and people to those who have sacrificed their lives for national independence.

It is also intended to meet the wish of the people, veterans, national contributors and relatives of those fallen at Dien Bien Phu.


The temple is built on Hill F and covers nearly 50,000 square metres within the Dien Bien Phu historical complex, with the main hall boasting an area of 300 square metres.

Most of the project’s VND105 billion (nearly US$4.6 million) cost is being funded by LienVietPostBank, with the rest coming from the local budget. It is scheduled for completion in 9 months.

The temple is part of a larger plan to conserve and renovate the site of the historic battle that ended French rule in Vietnam in 1954./.
