Urn is a kind of ancient Chinese cauldrons that stand upon legs with two facing handles.
The Nine Dynastic Urns placed inside The To Temple are all cast in bronze. They date back to a three-year 1835-1837 period under the reign of King Minh Mang. Each one, about two meters tall and weighing up to 2,600 kg, commemorate an emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, which ruled from 1802 to 1945.
Over 200 years, all the Nine Urns still remain intact. The relic was not only made to glorify the Nguyen Kings, demonstrating the power of the Nguyen dynasty, but also served as a geographic encyclopedia of Vietnam early in the 19th century with over 162 carved patterns exquisitely embossed on their surface.
They were recognized as a national treasure in 2012./.
Coach Park writes encouraging letter to players
After the historic advance to the final World Cup qualifying round, coach Park Hang-seo has sent players a letter of appreciation and encouragement.
“In the last three games of the second round, we have worked together and advanced to the final round of World Cup qualifiers. This has always been our goal and I’m so delighted about it. I want to thank all the players for believing in me, for giving their best effort with the highest spirit and the assistants who have devoted themselves selflessly day and night to support the team, as well as other members that have tried their best to complete the job,” he wrote.
“Let’s always give our best and be proud that you are a part of the team that have written a new chapter in the history of Vietnamese football.”
He asked the players to enjoy the time with their families during this short break, before going back to their World Cup campaign.
They will have much to do in the road ahead, Park said, promising he will try his best to complete his job.
“We will have to prepare for the final round of World Cup qualifiers in September, to face the top teams in Asia. We need to be more focused, physically, mentally and tactically. If we can stay united and keep giving our best, I believe we can achieve our goal.”
In the second round of World Cup qualifiers, Vietnam went unbeaten in seven games before losing to the UAE in the last match. They advanced to the third round as one of the five best second-placed teams.
The Golden Dragons are set to return to training in August to prepare for the third round, which will take place between Sept. 2, 2021 and March 29, 2022.

Ia Ruai stream flows through many villages in Ia Ly Township before running into the reservoir of the Ia Ly Hydropower Plant.
On a section to Van village of Ia Ly Town which is about 1km long, there is an exposed rocky outcrop, concentrating at two points located about 30 metres apart.
The two sides of the stream, believed to date back over 100 million years ago, are similar hexagonal stone blocks, arranging close together into large and solid blocks which are similar to the rocks at Ganh Da Dia (Reef of Plates) – a special national relic site in Phu Yen Province.
Ha Thi Thuy, a tourist from Pleiku City, said she knew about the stream through social network.
On the weekend, she took her family to Ia Ruai stream and was surprised to see that it was similar to Ganh Da Dia tourist site in Phu Yen. She liked the stream very much and has recommended it to her friends so that they could admire the unique natural beauty of this rock stream.
According to Chu Pah District’s Culture and Information Division, Ia Ruai stream is a potential tourist destination that needs to be protected and retained in its current state. Thus, it suggested the district People’s Committee upgrade the road leading to the stone stream and plant Shunshine trees (Cassia splendida Vogel) along the roads to provide shade for tourists.
Nguyen Quang Tue, head of Heritage Management Division under the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Gia Lai Province, said that the ancient rock stream need to be protected and kept the status quo as it has high potential for becoming a tourist destination.
The provincial department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will continue to survey to develop a plan for tourism development and compile a dossier of request for recognising it as a national relic site in the near future, he said.
