Renovation begins on Nguyen dynasty weather station

HUE — The former royal capital city of Hue has launched the renovation of the Quan Tuong Dai relic – a meteorology station used during the time of the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945).

The station was built on the Nam Kinh Bastion in the west-south of Hue Citadel with the purpose of supplying the court with information on the weather.

The new project, launched on Tuesday, will be conducted by the Hue Relic Conservation Centre and the Sub-Institute of Building Technology and Science. It is part of a larger mission to preserve and embellish parts of the former Hue capital, a site of major historical and cultural importance.

The VND3.8 billion (US$190,000) project on Quan Tuong Dai is expected to be completed by August 2013. — VNS
