Hero's home

 

A visit to President Ho Chi Minh's hometown gives visitors a glimpse of the 
Vietnamese hero's life.

The villages where Uncle Ho grew up and his family lived are in Kim Lien Commune in Nam Dan District, 14 km from northern central Nghe An Province's Vinh Town.

Preserved and named Kim Lien Cultural Historical Relic Site in the 1960s by the government, the birthplace of President Ho Chi Minh was recognized in 1979 as one of the four most important places relating to his life.

The 205-ha site includes several houses of Uncle Ho's parents, grandparents, teachers, the temples of his forefathers and his mother's tomb.

Ho Chi Minh was born, Nguyen Sinh Cung, in 1890 at his maternal parents' house in Hoang Tru Village (also called Chua Village).

It comprises three thatched cottages where his parents - Nguyen Sinh Sac and Hoang Thi Loan lived during their marriage.

Fatherland

Not far away from Hoang Tru is Ho Chi Minh's paternal homeland - Kim Lien Village which is also called Sen (Lotus) Village.

He lived there from 1901-1906.

Nestled behind bamboo trees is a five room thatched house, which the villagers built to honor the President's father who was a Confucian scholar, famous for his intellect.

From Chung Mountain, where the young Nguyen Sinh Cung and his friends used to play games, the homelands of famous historical figures like Nguyen Hue, Phan Boi Chau, Nguyen Cong Tru can be seen.

Nghe An Province is famous for traditional patriotism and the thirst for knowledge.

At the foot of the mountain, there is a small park named "Du lich theo chan Bac" (Traveling with Uncle Ho) designed for youths to learn more about the revolutionary career of the hero and the places around the world he visited to find a way to rid his country of colonists.

In 1987, UNESCO officially honored President Ho Chi Minh for dedicating his life to national liberation and contributing to the common struggle for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.

He was named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
