Thai Vi Temple Relic

This is a place of worship and memorial for kings of the Tran Dynasty such as: Tran Thai Tong, Tran Thanh Tong, Hien Tu Thai Hau, having great merits for the country in general and Vu Lam area in particular (encourage people in the area to reclaim wasteland into plowing fields and establish villages).
