Each of them truly reflects the royal celebration of the Lunar New Year. The exhibition is separated into three topics, aimed at introducing the ceremony to prepare for the solemn Lunar New Year, main activities at the royal parties, and traditional customs of the royal at the beginning of a Lunar New Year. The way the imperials celebrate Tet is very different from the way Vietnamese people enjoy it nowadays. Hence, the exhibition organizers hope that these valuable documents are useful to researchers and people interested in the culture and history.

Exhibition well received by the general public - Photo:

Modern society is changing a lot. Many customs are gradually being faded and forgotten, so Tet is an opportunity for Vietnamese people to look back and preserve the precious values of the traditional culture, this exhibition is among many meaningful activities held to deliver the message. This exhibition takes place until February 23 at The Temple of Literature, 58 Quoc Tu Giam Street, Hanoi.
