A garden previously reserved for the royalty in the ancient imperial city of Hue has been restored and opened to visitors as from April 21.

Gardening artisans in the city have brought more than 400 ornamental plants to the garden for display, attracting a large number of tourists.

Co Ha was one of the five royal gardens inside the Imperial Citadel. It was built in 1837 under the reign of King Minh Mang. It was upgraded and restored during King Thieu Tri’s reign (1848-1883) and King Tu Duc’s reign (1848-1883). However, the garden fell into oblivion at the beginning of the 20th century.-VNA
