Within the framework of Nha Trang-Khanh Hoa Sea Festival 2019, Khanh Hoa Center of Culture and Cinema on May 12 performed the rituals of Whale worshipping ceremony. 300 fishermen of the districts of Vinh Truong and Vinh Nguyen (Nha Trang) took part in the event.

The Whale worshipping ceremony originated from the belief in Ông Nam Hai (the Whale) of the fishermen. The practice of the whale worshipping ceremony helps to preserve a typical worshipping characteristic of the coastal regions.
