Vietnamese people turn to their roots at Tet

More than 1,000 people visited the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi on Sunday, the second day of the Lunar New Year to pay tribute to one of the most brilliant leaders of the Vietnamese nation.

"This is the first time my family has visited the mausoleum relic. We want to show our profound respect to President Ho Chi Minh", said Nguyen Van Tri, a visitor from the northern province of Ha Nam.

On Saturday and Sunday, the first and second day of the lunar new year, tens of thousands of people from across Vietnam flocked to the Hung Kings' Temple in the northern province of Phu Tho to offer insence to the legendary founders of Vietnam. The pilgrimage demonstrates the Vietnamese tradition of "Drinking water, remembering its source".
