* The Pavillion of Constellation of Literature (Khue Van Cac) captured in the 100,000VND note

Khue Van Cac is in Temple Literature (Van Mieu) on Van Mieu Street, Dong Da District, Hanoi. Although Van Mieu was built long ago, some architectural complexes in this area were erected much later.

In 1805, the Commander of the Northern Citadel, Nguyen Van Thanh, ordered the construction of Khue Van Cac at Van Mieu. This project was carried out at the same time as the erection of the surrounding walls around Van Mieu in 1833.

The pavillion was a two0storey complex made of wood and bricks, which is mirrored on the Thien Quang Well.

Ha Long bay in northern Quang Ninh province has been recognised as a world natural heritage by UNESCO. Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site's outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
