Thang Long Imperial Citadel relics to be exhibited

The Hanoi People’s Committee and the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS) have agreed to showcase a part of the relics at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel on the occasion of the capital city’s 1,000th founding anniversary.

At a meeting jointly held by the Hanoi People’s Committee and VASS on March 31, the two sides agreed that the showcase must comply with the Heritage Law and meet the demand and aspiration of people who want to study the relic site.

Relevant agencies are required to build a careful and quality plan for the display of the special tourist site’s relics before summiting it to the authorised level for approval.

Also at the meeting, historians and archaeologists said that initial studies have discovered the special cultural values of the Thang Long Imperial Citadel relic complex. It was a centre of the Chinese and Indian cultures lasting through 13 centuries and was also Vietnam ’s national administrative centre from the feudal dynasties of Ly and Tran to the era of Ho Chi Minh.

The Thang Long Imperial Citadel relic site is one of the 10 special national relics nominated for UNESCO recognition as a world cultural heritage in 2010./.
