Syncretism finds one of its greatest expressions in the portal, where the symbols of good fortune Vietnamese are alongside the statues of angels, saints, and episodes of Christ’s life.

Ninh Binh returns to lunch and visit Hoa Lu (visit the two dynastic temples), where two of the first emperors Viet, Dinh Tien Hoang and Le Danh Hanh are buried.
