On January 12th, 2020, a ceremony was held at 230 Nguyen Sinh Cung (Vi Da ward, Hue city, Thua Thien Hue province) to announce the national historical relic Recognition Decision and Certificate. Accordingly, Dien Khanh Vuong residence and tomb which is part of the residence system associated with the construction and development of Hue capital under Nguyen dynasty is recognized as national historical relic.

Dien Khanh Vuong, also called Nguyen Phuc Tan is the seventh son of Emperor Gia Long (1802 - 1820) and Nguyen Thi Dien (1780 - 1852). He was born in Gia Dinh on March 21st, 1799. Under the reigns of Emperor Minh Mang, Thieu Tri and Tu Duc, Dien Khanh Vuong contributed to protecting national defense and was praised by Emperors.

Located in Van The village (Thuy Thanh commune, Huong Thuy town), Dien Khanh Vuong residence was established in 1817. In 1857, Emperor Tu Duc decided to move the residence to Vy Da village (current position). The structure was renovated several times, however, its traditional architecture and precious artifacts are still conserved. Dien Khanh Vuong tomb is situated in An Tay ward, Hue city. Before Dien Khanh Vuong passed away (1854), tombs were constructed by Nguyen dynasty. The offering poem composed by Emperor Tu Duc was engraved on the stele placed in Dien Khanh Vuong tomb area.

In an attempt to conserve and promote relic's values, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism promulgated Decision No. 19/QD-BVHTTDL dated January 3rd, 2020 on ranking Dien Khanh Vuong residence and tomb as national historical relic.
