ĐÀ NẴNG — The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has recognised the annual Quán Thế Âm (Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva) Festival in Đà Nẵng’s Ngũ Hành Sơn district as National Intangible Heritage.

The city’s Sports and Culture department said the main festival, which falls on the 19th day of the second lunar month, features the procession of an image of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, and a prayer for a year of peace, prosperity and happiness for the nation, drawing at least 10,000 attendees.

The festival is often held at the Quán Thế Âm Pagoda at the foot of the Kim Sơn Mountain – the largest of the Ngũ Hành Sơn (Marble Mountains) in Đà Nẵng.

The stone sculptures art of the 400-year-old Non Nước stone village in the Marble Mountains was also recognised as National Intangible Heritage in 2014.

The Marble Mountains landscape site was named a National Special Relic in 2018.
