Update: Feb 07, 2022
An art programme entitled “Forever Echoing the Spirit of Tay Son” was held in Ho Chi Minh City on February 5 (the fifth day of the Lunar New Year), to mark the 233 rd anniversary of the Ngoc Hoi-Dong Da victory, over the Chinese Qing invaders.

A ceremony was held in the central province of Binh Dinh, to mark the Ngoc Hoi-Dong Da victory.

The event was designed to uphold the country’s cultural values, while educating young generations about the traditions of patriotism and national pride.

In 1789, under the leadership of Emperor Quang Trung (also known as national hero Nguyen Hue), Tay Son troops defeated 20,000 Qing invaders, liberating the imperial city of Thang Long and regaining national independence and freedom.

Since then, the fifth day of the first lunar month has become the traditional day marking this historic victory.

The Ngoc Hoi–Dong Da victory has also gone down in Vietnamese history, as an immortal and epic struggle for national construction and defence.

Dong Da Mound reportedly witnessed fierce battles between Emperor Quang Trung’s soldiers and the Chinese invaders, 233 years ago.

On February 4-5, the People’s Committee of the central province of Binh Dinh, also held a ceremony to mark the Ngoc Hoi-Dong Da victory, at a museum dedicated to Emperor Quang Trung in Phu Phong town, Tay Son district.
