The Ly Dynasty reigned 216 years (1009-1225) with nine kings who expanded the Dai Viet civilisation. Temples and tombs of the Ly kings include Den Do (Do Temple), Thien Duc tomb, Phat Tich and Nuong Dau tombs. 
Meanwhile, the Phat Tich Pagoda, built during the reign of King Ly Nhan Tong nearly a thousand years ago, is one of the largest Buddhist centres in the country. 
This year, the biennial event was themed “Ben dong Tieu Tuong” (By the Tieu Tuong River), featuring the unique Quan ho (love duet) singing in Bac Ninh – a UNESCO-recognised intangible cultural heritage site. 
The event was part of provincial efforts to preserve and promote the heritage sites.
