“Qingming Shang Ha Tu” is one of the 10 famous traditional Chinese paintings, with a length of 5 meters. Truong Trach Doan’s painting technique is extremely delicate and meticulous. He sketched out the society, economy and people’s life at that time with many different layers of meaning. It is not simply a painting, but contains great research and cultural value.
“Qingming Shang Ha Map” depicts the scene of Bianjing City of the Song Dynasty, one of the largest cities in the world of the 20th century with more than 1.37 million people.
The picture has people, animals and lots of structures. The most special thing is that each person acts separately, no one is the same, in total there are more than 500 people in Bian Kinh Citadel, and more than 1,600 people if including the whole picture.

Each character has a connection with each other, along with the scenery and pets to create a true miniature society.
2. From the suburbs to the flea market
“Thanh Minh Thuong Ha Map” sketches a complete city, from the suburbs to the inner city are very unique.
In the suburban area, the beautiful spring scenery makes people just want to stay but do not want to return. There was a group of merchants leading camels carrying goods into the inner city, there was a wide lawn, there was a barley field, there was an unused mill, and there were goats grazing.
The most prominent is the big road to the citadel – Bien Kinh Dai Dao, bustling and bustling connecting the Bien River. But the Bien River is a river specializing in transporting goods, dug by humans, in the middle there is a bridge across the river, crowded boats up and down the water.
The flea market is probably the most prosperous area of the whole picture. Many merchants display goods, buyers go back and forth, all kinds of products, there are even fortune tellers, cutlery sellers, grocers, and sacrifices.
In addition, the road will not be prosperous enough without tea houses, taverns, temples.
People also come from all walks of life: lords of the world, beggars on the street, commoners, thieves, priests and ascetics, and even the disabled. If there is anything in society in real life, there will be something in “Thanh Minh Thuong Ha Map”.
3. Amazing detail
Every character appearing in “Thanh Minh Thuong Ha Map” is not the same; Through their actions, dress, and charisma, one can judge their identity and status.
For example, a character under a banyan tree by the Bien River, after zooming in 100 times, do you realize what he is doing?
From the enlarged image, a man is sleeping under the shade of a banyan tree, next to a luggage chest. Interestingly, perhaps because it was unbearably hot, this man took off his outer pants, leaving only his eye-catching red inner pants, lying down to sleep naturally.
From many details that can be judged, this man may not be a Beijinger, just passing through this prosperous urban land. Because he was tired from the road, he couldn’t find a motel in time, plus the summer sun, he decided to take off his pants and lie down in the shade of a banyan tree to recuperate.
