Thus, Nghia Trung Dan which initially means the place of worshipping remains of soldiers dying in battle in Nguyen dynasty (1752-1792) also means the place of worshipping souls and forsaken spirits nobody makes offerings to them. Afterwards, Nghia Trung Dan renamed Linh Nghia Temple concerned with the following meanings. Hin nay, trong Ch�a c� mt c�i Miu nh, trong c�i Miu n�y c� th mt h�n � sng rt linh.
