Dai Bi pagoda was inaugurated in Simontornya city, Hungary on September 19, becoming the first Vietnamese pagoda recognised by the Hungarian government.

The pagoda, built from the Vietnam-Hungary fund over the last three years, is expected to become a popular spiritual destination for Vietnamese nationals in Europe.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Vice President and Secretary General of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Hầu A Lềnh thanked the Hungarian Government and Simontornya authorities for smoothing legal procedures for the construction of Dai Bi pagoda.

Expressing his delight over the development of the Vietnamese community in the central European country, Lềnh believed the pagoda will help connect Vietnamese nationals in Hungary and Europe, contributing to the preservation of traditional cultural values.

On the occasion, he conveyed President of the VFF Central Committee Trần Thanh Mẫn’s greetings to more than 5,000 Vietnamese people in Hungary, urging them to abide by regulations in the host nation and remember their homeland.

Meanwhile, Mayor of the Hungarian city Csoszne Kazc Edit, for her part, hailed contributions made by Phan Bích Thiện, President of the Vietnam-Hungary fund, to the building of Dai Bi Pagoda as well as the development of Simontornya city.

She affirmed the city’s authorities will facilitate spiritual and cultural activities of Vietnamese people, helping them protect their culture.
