Conservation of Royal relics gets approval

Thua Thien-Hue province has approved five projects on conserving and restoring relics within the imperial capital of Hue, with total funding of about 20 million USD.



Conservation will be undertaken at Can Chanh Palace and Nam Giao Altar at the Hue Imperial Citadel, the Temple of Literature, and the tombs of Emperors Thieu Tri and Tu Duc.

Under the plan, it is recommended that investors complete legal procedures and consult specialists during project planning so as to ensure effective restoration.

The complex of relics within the ancient imperial capital welcomed thousands of domestic and international visitors each day prior to the Covid-19 outbreak and is one of the province’s major tourist attractions.

Visitors to Thua Thien-Hue last year were estimated at 1.68 million, a decline of nearly 65 percent, of which international visitors were estimated at 558,800, down nearly 75 percent./.
