Built in 1927, Giac Ngo Pagoda is situated in Sa Vang Hamlet, Don Chau Commune, Duyen Hai District, Tra Vinh Province. The pagoda has played a significant role in the revolutionary cause of national liberation during the resistance wars against the French and the Americans. It serves as a spiritual sanctuary where Buddhists convey their best wishes for a better life. The annual festivals held at the pagoda epitomize the spirit of community cohesion, the tradition of filial piety, and the cultural principle of remembering one’s roots.

The Provincial People's Committee has tasked the Chief of the Provincial People's Committee Office, the Director of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the heads of relevant provincial departments and branches, and the Chairman of the Duyen Hai District People's Committee with the responsibility of preserving, restoring, and promoting the heritage values of Giac Ngo Pagoda in compliance with current regulations.
