The beauty of the Thang Long – Hanoi Imperial Citadel will be featured at an exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City from September 28.

Nearly 300 photos, maps and documentary films featuring the diverse culture and historical values of the citadel will be introduced to visitors.

The event is also expected to increase cultural exchanges between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The exhibit will be organised into three topics. The first topic provides general information on the old capital city of Thang Long and the world cultural heritage site Thang Long Imperial Citadel over historical periods.

With over 150 photos, drawings, and articles, the second portion will feature the architecture, scale, construction material and building techniques.

The third segment highlights the techniques used to make ceramics serving the daily lives of the Kings and their families.

Documentary films capturing the Thang Long Imperial Citadel will be screened as part of the exhibition.

The Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi, one of the country’s momentous relics, was initially built during the Ly Dynasty (1009 – 1225) and subsequently expanded by the Tran, Le and Nguyen Dynasties. The core area of the imperial citadel was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010.-VNA
