Sioux Falls, SD (USA) -- A Vietnamese Buddhist Temple opened its doors Sunday in Sioux Falls, making it the first temple in town.

Around 100 people packed into the new Chua Ky Vien, not just to celebrate the opening, but also Buddha's birthday.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was complete with traditional Vietnamese music and dances, a sermon and a flowers offering.
The ceremony was held inside the new temple, followed by dinner.

"So Sunday we are very happy to celebrate and we hope in the recent future we have more come and share with us too," said Thich Minh Dieu.

Chua Ky Vien is located on South Marion Road. The land was bought for the temple last fall with the help of Buddhist followers in Sioux Falls.
