2012, The year of Dragon, what you need to know about dragon in Vietnam

Con-rong-chau-tienIn Asian myths, no creature is as impressive as the dragon. For Vietnamese peasants, the dragon was a vivid symbol of the fourfold deity-clouds, rain, thunder and lighting. Represented by an S shape, dragons are depicted on artifacts dating back to the Dong Son-Au Lac culture, which existed in northern Vietnam in the first millennium B.C. Later came the cult of Tu Phap, or the Four Miracles. Long ago stargazers identified the Dragon constellation made up of seven stars arranged like an S. The brightest star is the Mind (Tam), also known as the Divine (Than) star. The word Than may also be read as Thin (Dragon), which denotes the third month of the lunar calendar and represents the Yang vital energy.

Zhao Tuo (230-137 BC), was a Qin dynasty’s mandarin in the Southern to settle his own kingdom and cultivate a distinctive Viet culture that parted from Han civilization. His new kingdom would be short lived, however.
In 111BC, the land he named Nam Viet was occupied by the Han Dynasty. Numerous policies were imposed to bring the Southern territory into cultural alignment, including forcing Vietnamese to convert to Han costumes, characterized by large diagonal flaps wrapped backwards and tightened sleeves.

Located in a narrow valley 8 km from Hue (Duong Xuan Thuong village), Tự Đức Tomb is one of the most beautifully designed complexes among the tombs of the Nguyen dynasty. Embedded in a lush pine forest, this tomb is the final resting place of Emperor Tự Đức (1848-83) who had the longest reign of all emperors of the Nguyen dynasty. As usual at that time, Tự Đức had begun planning and constructing his tomb long before he died in 1883. Thus, the major parts of the tomb complex were built around 1864-67. In his lifetime, the Emperor Tự Đức used the tomb as a palatial retreat together with his many wives and concubines.
