This is the only temple with a complete scale remaining of an architectural work bearing the elements of Taoist culture across the country in general and Hung Yen province in particular. An Xa temple not only has the value of ancient architecture and beautiful landscape space, but also has high artistic value which is expressed through typical and rare relics kept at the monument such as: Terracotta tower; altar and two pedestals of terracotta statues; bronze bells... These are cultural heritages, a valuable historical source for researchers when studying about relics, places and customs of worshiping gods.

An Xa temple's terracotta tower is recognized as a national treasure (according to the Decision No. 2198/QD-TTg dated December 25, 2021 of the Prime Minister on the recognition of national treasure).
