Sen Village

Sen Village, located in Kim Lien commune, Nam Dan district, Nghe An province approximately 20 km west of Vinh, was the homeland of President Ho Chi Minh's father. Like other rural villages throughout the nation, Sen village is surrounded by bamboo trees, water wells, Banyan trees, communal houses, vast rice fields, and mountains.

Next to Sen Village is Chua, the homeland of Uncle Ho's mother where President Ho Chi Minh was born. Areca trees border the path leading to the house where Uncle Ho spent his childhood. The local people built the house as a present for Mr. Nguyen Sinh Sac, Uncle Ho's father. He received this house after he successfully passed the national examination and obtained the second rank in 1901. Inside the cottage are some facilities that reflect the life of a poor Confucian scholar's family such as a wooden board, a writing desk, chairs, a wooden tray and other artifacts. President Ho Chi Minh used to listen to the literary and political discussions of his father and his fellows Mr. Phan Boi Chau and Confucian scholar Mr. Vuong Thuc Quy.

The house is situated under a row of bamboo trees, with an orchard in the front yard and a garden at the side. In 1957, President Ho Chi Minh went back to Sen after 50 years.
