Hai Thuong Lan Ong Le Huu Trac Relic Complex

The relic complex is commemorated to Hai Thuong Lan Ong Le Huu Trac a great physician of Vietnam. The complex is located in Lieu Xa village, Lieu Xa commune, Yen My district.

Le Huu Trac (1720-1791) was a great physician, outstanding poet and writer and modern scholar with a humane ideology. After he died, people and health care circles proclaimed Le Huu Trac the founder of Vietnam's medicine.

Over the past two centuries, Lieu Xa village – Le Huu Trac's native land – is preserving many relics related to great physician Hai Thuong Lan Ong.

Dr Le Huu Muu Temple is dedicated to Le Huu Trac's father. The temple has the nomination certification board of Le Huu Trac's father, parallel sentences and an 18th-century stele.

Ancestor-worshipping House is dedicated to the Le family living in Lieu Xa village.

Van Pagoda (also Ba Sinh Pagoda) is built in the 17th century and restored in 1782 when Hai Thuong Lan Ong visited his native land. It was said that the pagoda was built by Le Huu Kieu – Le Huu Trac's old father. This used to be the establishment of the Northern Regional Party Committee in the 1942-1945 period and the Party's newspaper-printing place.

Mausoleum complex of the Le family was built in the 18th century.

Le Huu Trac Memory House was built in 1990 on the former platform of the Le family's house.

Lieu Xa Communal House was built in early the 20th century.

The traditional festival for commemorating the Great Physician is organized annually on January 15 (lunar year) – his death anniversary. Since 2000, Le Huu Trac's death anniversary day has been chosen as a traditional day of people working for the traditional medicine sector in Vietnam.
