Update: September, 21/2012 - 10:06

HA NOI  (VNS)— Experts from Viet Nam Archaeology Association yesterday started a 15sq.m area at the Voi Phuc (Kneeling Elephant) Temple in Ha Noi.

The temple, in Thuy Khue Street, was built in the 11th century as one of four sacred temples guarding the four main entrances to Thang Long Citadel (former name of Ha Noi).

It was recognised as a vestige of national culture relic in 1962. The building has been repaired many times throughout its history.

The work will last for 10 days.-VNS
