Thuong bridge with thatched roof with unique architecture in Kenh village, Co Le town, Truc Ninh district, Nam Dinh province, Vietnam. Over thousands of years, this bridge still retains the ancient architectural structure. The bridge has 5 spans, each from 1.45m to 1.65m, 10m long, 4m wide, 3m high from the floor.
The bridge abutment system was formerly made of monolithic green stone. Carpenters from Son Nam town were hired to build it with iron-wood (Lim) and thatch. The main space was designed for circulation and 2 side spaces for people to rest.
Photos were captured by Trieu Chien in Nam Dinh province for documentation purpose. Full article about this bridge will be edited soon for publishing.
