Yen Tu is widely regarded as one of the main Buddhist centers in Vietnam. It was established by Tran Nhan Tong in the 13th century and has since become a significant place for Buddhist meditation. The complex is home to numerous pagodas and shrines, housing a vast collection of statues and artifacts.

The festival begins with traditional rituals, such as drum beating, bell ringing, and other spiritual practices.

During the opening ceremony of the festival, participants come together to pray for peace.

The number of visitors to the area has increased by 19% compared to the same period last year, with around 138,000 arrivals since the start of the lunar new year.
