The temple was built in 2012 to commemorate 40 Vietnamese soldiers who laid down their lives during the attack on a US military base in 1969. An upgrade of the memorial site began in June last year with a total investment of more than 380,000 USD.  

“Historical sites hold great significance in educating the younger generation about Vietnamese tradition. We hope that the temple will be an eternal reminder of the revolution and those who sacrificed themselves for national independence and freedom,” said Prime Minister Phuc.

The temple, together with the Moc Bai victory relic site, Hon Ham historical relic site and Huong Que communal house, has formed a complex of historical and revolutionary relic sites in Que Phu commune.
