By Google map, this is the name of the street in front of U Café.
So far I’m not sure this new name is correct or not.
Huyền Trân Công Chúa was a princess of dynasty Đại Việt.
By his father’s order, Trân Nhân Tông, the king of Đại Việt,
she married the king of Champa as a matter of political strategy.
Misfortunes never come singly.
In the next year of her marriage, her husband died.
At that point in time, according to the tradition of Champa,
all of the royal wives would be cremated with the dead king.
It is said that she was rescued by the legend of Đại Việt,
but no historical proof for their success.
Any way, thank you for offering us the meaningful street’s name.
We don’t silently overlook the sad stage same as her.
We’ll work our best to support young woman
who’re making exertions to overcome one’s adversity.
