VietNamNet - Chua Huong (Perfume Pagoda) Festival 2005 is to open on February 14 at Vietnam's largest and most famous pagoda, announced a press conference on January 21.

The Chua Huong Festival, the biggest and longest annual festival in Vietnam, opens in My Duc District, northern Ha Tay Province, on February 14, 2005, the sixth day of the first lunar month.

The festival, lasting through three months in spring, attracts hundreds of thousands of Buddhist pilgrims and tourists from all parts of the country, as well as overseas Vietnamese.

To ensure safe journeys for pilgrims this year, the local authority has set up a festival organising board to manage services and cultural activities, preparing 3000 boats and expanding Yen spring, which leads the way to the main pagoda.
