Giant rice-cake delivery for 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi

A huge rice-cake was carried from Phu Minh town, Phu Xuyen district, Hanoi to Bai Dinh pagoda in Ninh Binh province on the morning of March 3 to welcome the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi and honour the famous Quan Ganh trade village.

The giant rice cake weighs 2,010 kg and has a diameter of 2,010m. It looks like a lotus flower with a dragon representing the Ly dynasty engraved on the top. To make this sophisticated design, the sponsors had mobilised painters, sculptors and consultants to work over 4 months.

The Quan Ganh trade village chose 5 well-known families of craftsmen and over 30 artisans to serve continuously in the 13 hours of making this cake.
