New statue of Vietnam’s founder planned for Da Lat
The design of a new statue of one of Hung Kings, the legendary founders of Vietnam, proposed by the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Lam Dong Province.

The People’s Committee of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam’s Central Highlands region has planned to seek the approval from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to erect a new statue of one of Hung Kings, the legendary founders of the country, in Da Lat.

The plan was prepared by the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Lam Dong, which mapped out that the structure will be 51 meters high and cover an area of 650 square meters.

It will be placed on Phuong Hoang Hill in the Prenn waterfall tourist area, about 13 kilometers from the heart of Da Lat, the capital city of the province.

The People’s Committee of Lam Dong tasked the culture department with working with the provincial Department of Construction to complete the project.

The construction department, however, has pointed out a few inappropriate details of the new statue, including the larger space it will take up than allowed.

An approval is also needed to be obtained from the General Staff of the People’s Army of Vietnam and the authorities of Lien Khuong Airport, located some 19 kilometers from Phuong Hoang Hill, regarding the height of the statue.

Hung Kings is the title given to the ancient Vietnamese rulers of the Hong Bang period (2879-258 BC). 

Legend has it that they are the first ancestors of Vietnamese people.
