A unique collection of antique Buddha statues and associated artefacts will be displayed at a Buddhist culture museum, the first of its kind in Vietnam, in the central city of Da Nang later this month.

The museum, located inside Quan The Am Pagoda, will open to the public on December 24, news website VnExpress reported.
The pagoda’s management board said it was keeping more than 500 statues but only 200 of which will be showcased given the museum’s area.
Some of the objects on display can be considered national treasures, the board said.
