Two more pagodas built on Truong Sa archipelago

Construction started on two new pagodas on Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa on April 22-23, increasing the number of pagodas on the islands to five.

These significant religious works are constructed by Xuan Truong Construction Company as gifts to Son Ca and Nam Yet islands, aiming to serve the islanders’ religious practice and remind them of great contributions of the ancestors and heroic martyrs who laid down their lives to protect the fatherland’s sea and islands.

The pagodas, covering 1,000 square metres each, will be built within 10 months.

Earlier, Xuan Truong Construction Company had built two pagodas for Song Tu Tay and Truong Sa Lon islands of the Truong Sa archipelago.
