A series of vestiges found in the Tran Temple (Thai Lang) and Lang Ngoi ward in Hung Ha district, northern Thai Binh province, has revealed evidence on the position of the Lo Giang royal palace built in the Tran Dynasty in the 13th century.

According to information released at a seminar on January 6 in the locality, recent archaeological excavations in the area disclosed various kinds of architectural materials dating to between the late 13th century and the 14th century.

Excavators unearthed traces of a foundation of architectural constructions, brick-courtyards, tiles and dragon- and stag-shaped decorations.

Bui Minh Tri, Director of the Centre for Imperial City Research said the results of the excavations have provided a significant database to prove the exact position of Lo Giang palace.

According to “Dai Viet su ky toan thu” (The Complete History of Dai Viet), the Lo Giang Imperial Palace was also called the Kien Xuong Palace under the reign of King Tran Hien Tong (1319-1341).-VNA
