NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Sunday was the grand opening for a new Vietnamese Buddhist Temple on Gordon Road.

 

Nearly a dozen monks from across the country came to Wilmington for the dedication.  All of the statues and items on the alter came from Vietnam. One Wilmington woman, who is 93-years-old told WECT that she has been waiting a long time for a temple like this.

"Today is important because I have been waiting for a temple like this for a long time, I am very happy," said Dao Schultz.

The temple is located at 6222 Gordon Road.
