Hanoi will spend VND1.8 trillion (US$77.2 million) implementing the Kinh Thien Palace restoration project as part of the city’s historical and cultural structure conservation plan.

The capital city decided to review historical structures citywide and set aside funding to preserve these ancient buildings and promote their value, according to the steering board for urban embellishment and development in the 2021-25 period.

The Kinh Thien Palace was built in 1428 during the reign of King Le Thai To, but it was completed in the reign of King Le Thanh Tong.

This is the main relic site among others at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi.

Apart from the Kinh Thien Palace, the city will restore many other historical and cultural structures such as the Vietnam Military History Museum, the Hoang Dieu Archeological Site, the Long Bien bridge area, and 131 railway arches.

The Vietnamese capital city plans to use VND798 billion ($34.2 million) to rehabilitate the Hoang Dieu Archeological Site, while VND136 billion ($5.8 million) will be earmarked for the Hoang Cung (Palace) exhibition house restoration project, which is located in the Thang Long Imperial Citadel.

In addition, Hanoi intends to restore its legendary Co Loa Citadel in the outlying district of Dong Anh.
