Ba Vang Pagoda Shines with Dual World Records

A momentous day unfolded at Ba Vang Pagoda in Uong Bi City, Quang Ninh, as this sacred site achieved not one, but two world records simultaneously. On May 21, amidst an atmosphere brimming with joy and reverence, the Great Buddha’s Birthday 2023 celebration took place, marked by the grand inauguration of the world’s largest mountain lecture hall. Thousands of people and devoted Buddhists congregated to witness this remarkable event, making it a truly memorable day in the annals of achievement.

The auspicious ceremony encompassed various religious rituals, including offering incense, chanting the birthday chant, presenting water offerings to the Buddha, a vibrant flower parade honoring Buddha’s birthday, and a graceful dance performance dedicated to the auspicious occasion.

A particular highlight of Buddha’s Birthday 2023 was the unveiling of the mountain lecture hall at Ba Vang Pagoda. This magnificent structure has a seating capacity of up to 15,000 people, the lecture hall embodies the vision of providing a sacred space for Buddhists to listen to Buddhist sutras and partake in significant temple ceremonies.

During the ceremony, the prestigious World Records Union (WorldKings) bestowed an official world record recognition upon Ba Vang Pagoda, proclaiming it as the “Three Golden Temple – Where there is a 2-storey Buddha lecture hall located on the mountain, with the largest total floor area in the world.” In parallel, the World Record Association also acknowledged Ba Vang Pagoda as the temple housing the largest Buddhist lecture hall on a mountain, spanning two floors with the greatest area in the world.

The world stands in awe of this remarkable feat, and the legacy of this mega event will forever be etched in the hearts and minds of those who witnessed the convergence of spirituality, grandeur, and world records.
