The Vietnamese Cultural Center (VCC), located in West Seattle at 2236 SW Orchard St, began construction of its second temple on Nov. 3. The new temple will be approximately twice the size of the existing neighboring temple and will welcome visitors and offer them a place to pray.
Located in the temple will be a statue of Hùng Vương sourced from Vietnam. Hùng Vương is the legendary emperor who founded the Vietnamese Kingdom in third millennia BC. (end)
