CAU NGOI THANH TOAN (GREEN RIVER COVER BRIDGE, ROOFTED BRIDGE)


BUILT IN 1776 BY LADY TRAN THI DAO, A WIFE OF A HIGH LEVEL MANDARIN UNDER THE REIGN OF EMPEROR LE HIEN TONG AS SHE WISHED TO HAVE A CHILD. THE EMPEROR WAS VERY HAPPY AS HE ALSO EXEMPTED THE VILLAGERS FROM MANY TAXES.
IN 1925, EMPEROR KHAI DINH GRANTED HER AS A PROTECTOR GOD OF THIS VILLAGE AND ALLOW TO BUILT HER ALTAR OVER THIS BRIDGE
LIKE MANY OF COVER BRIDGE IN VIETNAM, THIS BRIDGE IS ALSO LOCATED NEXT TO A TRADITIONAL MARKET
