Ben Tre restores ancient architectural heritage

Print

Renovation of two old architectural buildings in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre, which began in August 2013, was completed on April 24.

A total investment exceeding 25.6 billion VND (1.2 million USD) was used to restore an over 100-year-old house, Huynh Phu, and a stone tomb area located in Thanh Phu district.

The ancient house, covering 520 square metres, has long preserved a wide range of wood carving creations dating back to the Nguyen dynasty (1802 - 1945 ), which have remained nearly intact.

The tomb area, recognised as a national architectural heritage in 2011, contains unique stone sculptures.

Both structures are the last surviving remnants of their kind in the province, which boasts a number of cultural and historic vestiges.-VNA
