外文标题：Vietnamese criticize the construction of a Cultural Facility to honor Chinese philosopher, Confucius
In Vietnam, cultural edifice dedicated to Chinese philosopher blasted for extravagance
I think its good to restore temples & shrines to honor the ancestors and perserve historical heritage. But don't spend more than what is needed
Temple of Literature (Văn Miếu) in Đống Đa, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Building temples for Confucius right when you need to buy warships to fight Confucius‘ descendants ?...
Well I must say I have new found respect for Vietnam
the critic is about the high cost of the new temple in Vinh Yen. we have already an existing temple in Hanoi. built in year 1070. that old temple needs a refreshment.
Not sure whos is Confucius descendants, but Im sure not all modern Chinese relate to him. There are bunch of Tai Yuannan, Manchu, Mongols assimilated and mixing madde up modern Chinese. I would oppose such plan as well.
His descendant is still there and works as a university professor.
Not all of Chinese begin as Han, consider hundred to thoundsand years mixing and assimilations. Look at Yuannan and areas around it, was Tai kingdom, we almost obsorbed that Kingdom, forced them look for the Song protection, in turn the Song swallow their whole Kingdom, led to mass migration to SEA mix with Siam mon khmer thus we have Thailand today. What left of Tai kingdom become part of Laos, and north West Vietnam. Google for Dai Viet attack Yuannan
China is rich enough to afford it I guess. LOL
you vites should switch to worship your india brother's gods, which is cheap and has millions of choice.
