Vietnam to get 61 mln for restoring royal citadel

Nearly US$61.4 million will be spent to restore its imperial citadel and relocate 876 families living along the site’s wall by the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

According to investors -- the Hue people’s committee and the Hue Ancient Capital Relics Preservation Center -- the restoration project will be begin by the end of this year to be completed in 2015.

Accordingly, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism asked the province to do its best to restore the water system and rock embankment of the citadel using traditional methods.

That means the pavement along the citadel’s wall will be made of traditional Bat trang tiles as a symbol of Vietnamese Culture.

The Hue imperial citadel was built in the 19th century as the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) central government headquarters. The Nguyen was the last Vietnamese Dynasty in Vietnamese history.

Nearly 3,000 families live along the citadel’s 10-kilometer wall. All will eventually need to be moved, according to local authorities.
