TIEN CONG SHRINE IN YEN HUNG DISTRICT
 
The Tien Cong Shrine is built next to the Cam La Commune People's Committee and is dedicated to the cult of the 19 founding fathers, who built dykes on the sea, creating the Ha Nam Island with its seven communes.

The ancient shrine was rebuilt during the third year of Emperor Gia Long’s reign (1804), and since then has undergone many restorations.

The shrine was built according to the Chinese character "nhi" (=")" which consists of a three-compartment and two lean-tos in the Front Ceremonial Hall, a three-compartment in the Back Sanctuary. The carving alter, stone stele, parallel sentences which marked the Nguyen Dynasty.

Formerly, the island was a submerged alluvial beach at the mouth of the Bach Dang River. In 1434, 19 elderly people born in the Hoai Duc District arrived here in search of a new land. They based themselves on the earthen roads above the water level and together with the local fishing people, built the dykes.
