Lam Kinh Historical Relic is located in Xuan Lam Commune of Tho Xuan District in Thanh Hoa Province. The Lam Kinh Historical Relic where Le Loi and many Kings of the later Le Dynasty lie at rest covers about 200ha, including royal tombs and temples.

Within the frameworks of Lam Kinh Festival 2013, the Thanh Hoa Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has held many attractive activities such as art performances, exhibitions, folk games, film screenings and camps.

In the past, the State has invested more than VND100 billion to reconstruct the historical monument.
