Bac Ninh is among the most ancient lands in Vietnam. The province was the political, economic and religious center of Giao Chau (the name of Vietnam) in the 2nd century B.C. Buddhism was introduced to Bac Ninh before other regions in the country. There are still spiritual monuments, archaeological artifacts and architectures that suggest the development of the land throughout the history of Vietnam.
