Vietnam’s central Thua Thien-Hue Province will spend nearly US$61.4 million to restore its imperial citadel and relocate 876 families living along the site’s 10-km wall wall.
According to the Hue People’s Committee and the Hue Ancient Capital Relics Preservation Center, the restoration project will begin by the end of this year and be completed in 2015.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism asked the province to restore the water system and rock embankment of the citadel using traditional methods, which means the pavement along the citadel’s wall will be made of traditional “bat trang” tiles.
