Historic 18th century citadel to be restored in central region

BINH DINH — Hoang De Citadel in the central province of Binh Dinh will be restored in a manner that retains its historic and cultural values, the provincial cultural authority has announced.

Located on a 900sq.m site in An Nhon township, the citadel was built by King Thai Duc in the late 18th century on a foundation dating from the Champa Kingdom. Several stone walls and granite-tiled roads remain from the citadel.

The citadel is the only architecture from the Tay Son dynasty remaining that has further potential for archaeological exploration.

A two-month preliminary excavation has been implemented by archaeologists from the Viet Nam Archeology Institute in co-operation with provincial authorities.-VNS
