Nguyen Huu Canh Tomb

Located on a hill of An Ma mountain range of Truong Thuy commune – Le Thuy, Quang Binh, Mandarin Nguyen Huu Canh tomb appears on a spacious territory. Born in 1650, Nguyen Huu Canh was a famous commander and an excellent administrator under the Nguyen Lords during Trinh-Nguyen War (1627-1672 and prolonged to 1775). He is credited for expanding territories to the south and establishing the administrative management for the southern region at the end of the 17th century. From Quang Binh to the center of Saigon, there were temples or altars established for worshiping and memorizing him and his great merits to the country.
