Historical Significance

Tan Trao was a temporary capital of the independent section of Viet Nam, where the Vietnamese Communist Party held several meetings, especially during August 1945. On 13 August 1945, attendees voted in favor of a general revolution during a National Conference meeting of the Communist Party. On 16 August 1945, the National Assembly Conference was held.

Ten major policies were voted by the Viet Minh, the League for the Independence of Viet Nam, and a temporary government chaired by President Ho Chi Minh was established. The Viet Minh army was also founded on that day. Also on 16 August, the Provisional Government led by President Ho Chi Minh had a meeting in the Tan Trao Communal House. The participants of this conference stayed at the Hong Thai Communal House. One hundred meters north of the communal house is the Tan Trao Banyan tree. Between June and August 1945, before he returned to Ha Noi, President Ho Chi Minh resided in this area in a cottage erected by the liberation soldiers.
