Earlier, a working delegation of the fund made a fact-finding tour to the site and gave several recommendations on measures to preserve and promote the value of the heritage site.

The Ho Dynasty Citadel in Vinh Loc district was Vietnam’s capital under the Ho Dynasty (1398-1407). The dimensions of the citadel, which was built in 1397, are 870m by 883m.

It is the only citadel in the country built entirely of stone that has remained nearly intact throughout the nation’s history.

According to experts, the structure is an outstanding example of a new style of construction for a Southeast Asian imperial city. It was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 2011.

 

Mobilizing social resources for relic restoration
(BGO) - Implementing the policy of promoting the mobilization of social resources, in recent years, many localities in Bac Giang province have actively persuaded people to donate money and working days for the restoration of historical and cultural relics. The work has eased the burden on the budget while preserving and promoting the value of relics.
