After your breakfast, our driver and tour guide pick you up go to Thanh Toan Bridge. The Central of Vietnam owns plenty of huge and magnificent bridges, but Thanh Toan Bridge is completely different from modern bridges thanks to its exclusive architecture. The architecture style “house above bridge” is preserved in only a few constructions in Vietnam. In the Central, there are two remaining bridges in that style, including Cau Pagoda (Japanese Covered Bridge) in Hoi An and Thanh Toan Bridge in Hue.

Spring and autumn are two festive seasons in Thanh Toan Village. The festivals are held annually to memorize the ancestors founding the village as well as the previous generations who maintained and amortized cultural traits and beliefs to the descendants. The spring and autumn festivals in Thanh Toan Bridge attracts not only the villagers but also the visitors coming to Thanh Toan Village at these times.

Instead, it utilizes the surrounding mountains as a natural wall, which not only protects the interior but also adorns the imposing appearance of the tomb. Tomb of Thieu Tri leans on Thuan Dao Mountain, the front part is an immense paddy field stretching from the bank of Huong River to Lim Bridge. Due to the geography condition, the tomb faces northwest, an unpopular direction of architecture in general and of Hue’s ancient constructions in particular. In the distance of 1 kilometer in front of the tomb, Vong Canh hill on the right and Ngoc Tran Mountain on the left as a tiger and a dragon guarding the tomb.

It contains the palaces that housed the imperial family, as well as shrines, gardens, and villas for mandarins. The Imperial was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993 and is undergoing restoration. Coming to Hue, it is impossible to ignore a heritage of extremely meaningful historical value.

After visiting Imperial, we will visit Thien Mu pagoda. It is a historic temple in the city of Hue in Vietnam. Built in 1601 on the order of the first Nguyen lords, Nguyen Hoang, who at that time was the governor of Thuan Hoa (now known as Hue). The Nguyen Lords were in name, officials of the ruling Le Dynasty in Hanoi, but was the de facto independent ruler of central Vietnam. According to the royal annals, Hoang while touring the vicinity was told of the local legend in which an old lady, known as Thien Mu (literally “celestial lady”), dressed in red and blue sat at the site, rubbing her cheeks. She foretold that a lord would come and erect a pagoda on the hill to pray for the country’s prosperity. She then vanished after making her prophecy. Upon hearing this, Hoang ordered the construction of a temple at the site, thus the beginning of Thien Mu Tu.
