Vietnamese communal temples (Vietnamese: Đinh) are typical of buildings found in Vietnam villages, dedicated to worship the village God Thanh Hoang, the village founder or a local hero. They also play the role as a meeting place of the people in the community, akin to modern civic centers. Therefore, the communal house has long become a cultural symbol of the community. This book is a historical, cultural study from the sources collected from the field as well as from historical documents. The content of the book consists of 4 main parts: 1. Vietnamese communal temples in history. 2. The formation and development of communal temples in the South. 3. Objects that are worshiped in communal temples in the South. 4. Rituals and festivals in communal temples.
