Imperial Citadel to become historical park Hanoi hosts archaeological conference
The Imperial Citadel zone, located in the city’s Ba Dinh District, includes an archaeological site at 18 Hoang Dieu Street, and a wider area that was one part of the citadel’s grounds.
The plan aims to preserve the archaeological site and develop part of the citadel area into a park that will showcase the value of the relics and the site’s 1,000-year-old-history.
The citadel’s central sector was recognized by UNESCO as an example of World Cultural Heritage in 2010. The ancient site is also located in modern-day Hanoi’s political center, close to the site of the new National Assembly House, which is still under construction.
