Phung Hung was a great man of political, historical and cultural significance in Hanoi, Vietnam. There have been many great Kings who have made great contributions to the nation over 4000 years.

From the beginning, with the establishment of leadership under Hung Vuong to Hai Ba Trung, Ly Nam De, Phung Vuong, Ngo Vuong, Dinh – Tien – Le – Ly – Tran – Le Trung Hung – Nguyen dynasties to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnamese people have always hope for great leaders

Phung Hung was one of the great Kings in Vietnam, he has been honored in Vietnam generation after generation. Historian Ngo Si Lien wrote: “Phung Hung was an excellent hero in Duong Lam who always resented Cao Chinh Binh’s cruelty. Phung Hung was a truly good – hearted man”

Nowadays, Phung Hung’s tomb in Kim Ma street is a valuable cultural address. Phung Hung’s temple in Son Tay is a pride of tourism in Duong Lam and a place to worship and learn about Phung Hung.
