VGP - Archeologists have discovered vestiges of ancient tiled courtyards while excavating Lang Đạo pagoda in Sơn Dương District, in the northern mountainous province of Tuyên Quang.
According to archeologists, the courtyards were built under the Trần dynasty in the 13th -14th century and existed until the Lê dynasty, between the 15th-17th century.
Uncovered artifacts included rectangular bricks, shoe-cap tiles and a number of typical pottery and ceramic objects dated back the Trần and Lê dynasties.
The ancient religious construction was one of two most typical and intact relics that have been discovered in Việt Nam.
Doctor Trần Anh Dũng of Việt Nam Archeology Institute said this is a large-scale and rare architectural work in the country’s ancient architectural systems.
The discovery has provided archeologists with more evidence in their study of the historical value of ancient Tuyên Quang./.
