The provincial People’s Committee has approved a plan to restore the Ta Tra building of Dien Tho Palace, which was part of the former Hue Imperial City.

According to the committee, the restoration will cost US$ 524,000 which will begin in 2013.

The Ta Tra building, a brick and wood structure was bombed by US forces during the Vietnam War in 1968. The site was originally used as a venue for people to gain an audience with the Queen Mother.

Dien Tho Palace was the first building to be constructed in Hue in 1804. It was the place where the queen mothers of the Nguyen dynasty lived and received visitors.

In another move, the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre will preserve the brick foundations of the former Quoc Tu Giam School (Royal College) following its excavation last September.

The centre’s director, Phan Thanh Hai, said the excavation could help archaeologist better preserve the vestiges of the former Hue Imperial City.

The centre plans to turn the excavated area into a nursery of rare and precious trees. The project will start early next year in Huong Ho Commune, Huong Tra district, Thua Thien-Hue province.
