The tomb renovation plan.


The tomb of princess Cam Vinh Truong (born in 1474), is located in Cao Hay Field, Lu Dai Village, Xuan Phong Commune, Tho Xuan District of Thanh Hoa Province.

Using markings on the tomb, scientists from Sino-Nom Research Institute have confirmed that the tomb was built in 1498 though they haven’t shed any light on when the princess died.

The tomb was made entirely by stone with a big stele bearing Chinese characters and decorated with phoenix and dragon images. The stele was placed on the back of a stone tortoise. The stele stands 2.6m tall and 1.27m wide, while the tortoise measures 2.1m long and is 1.34m wide.

Local authorities plan to upgrade the foundation of the tomb, build a roof and a surrounding fence for locals and tourists to visit the site. The task is set to be completed in two months.

According to Le Viet The, chairman of Xuan Phong Commune’s People’s Committee, the commune submitted the plan a long time before receiving approval to upgrade the site due to limited funds.

“In the next few months, the district’s leaders will work with the commune to better preserve and develop historical values of the heritage,” said Do Dinh Tam, head of Culture & Information Department of Tho Xuan District.
