Diem Truong village's hall, shrine and tomb of Tra Quan Cong (Vinh Hung commune, Phu Loc district) was recognized as province-level historic relics on Decision No. 549/QD-UBND dated March 12th of the Chairman of the People's Committee of Thua Thien Hue province.

Diem Truong village's hall: It is the place where people and clans founding the village were worshiped. According to elder villagers, this construction was built when the village was founded, more than 400 years ago.

Over years, the structure was renovated several times. The latest renovation was carried out in 2001. The three-compartment hall still keeps its majesty with beautifully engraved wooden pillars. The middle compartment worships three large clans (Bui, Tran and La) recognized as founders of the village by Nguyen dynasty. The left and right spaces were dedicated to worship founders of 52 clans.

At present, many royal proclamations and ordinances of Tay Son and Nguyen reigns are still can be found at the village hall including the document made under Duy Tan reign to bestow title to La and Bui clan, the paper in which Emperor Khai Dinh bestowed title to the three clans, namely Bui, Tran and La for founding the village.

Madam Tra shrine: Located in the east, near Trung Chanh hamlet's paddy field (Phung Chanh commune), Madam Tra shrine was formerly a little place of worship constructed under the reign of Nguyen Emperors. It is about 150m away from Dinh Doi hall village of Diem and Phung village. As it was seriously degraded, villagers built a small place of worship called Diem Tu Duong in front of the village hall in 1963 to worship Madam Tra.

To pay tribute to the great merits of Mr. and Ms. Tra, especially lady Tra Quan Cong, the female founder, villagers contributed to building a larger shrine to worship lady Tra and other figures in 2019.

Tombs of Mr and Ms Tra Quan Cong: Built in Phung Chanh village, these hexagon structures are about 100m away from each other. Today, two ancient stelae decorated with dragon and phoenix images, showing Nguyen dynasty's style still can be found.  

The shrine and tombs of Mr. and Ms. Tra Quan Cong are valued in terms of history and culture. They show the gratitude of today generations to predecessors who founded and protected homeland. These also reflect changes in Thuan Hoa - Phu Xuan in the 16th century, especially the fight between Dang Trong and Dang Ngoai, or Trinh and Nguyen.

Great merits of Mr and Ms. Tra showed a historical period when lord Nguyen Hoang moved to Dang Trong with the support of talented and righteous people including Tra Quan Cong and lady Tra.
