NDO – The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre in coordination with the Relics Preservation Institute under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism held a ceremony on March 21 to introduce a book entitled ‘Hue architectural heritages through strokes’.

According to the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre, Hue architectural heritage features a unique collection of typical architectural buildings and structures, including ramparts, palaces, temples, mausoleums, pagodas, and houses, which represent typical features of the architectural types and styles of Vietnamese feudal dynasties.

Since the early 80s of last century, the Institute of Monuments Preservation has carried out projects to restore relic sites in Hue. However, there has not yet historical documents on the detailed construction drawings and plans of the relics. Therefore, the projects’ members must meticulously measure and develop the drawings completely manually, without any technical support.

The ‘Hue architectural heritages through strokes’ publication features seven sets of drawing documents of seven constructions: Ngo Mon (Noon Gate), the Trieu Mieu relic site, Hien Lam Pavilion, Ta Vu-Can Chanh Palace, Thai Binh Lau (Royal Library), Du Khiem Pier, and the Xung Khiem floating pavilion.

The drawings were created by staff of the Relics Preservation Institute around four decades ago. They were the very first sketches on the detailed construction of the relic sites, contributing to the preservation of the cultural heritage and unique architecture of Hue Imperial City.

The introduction of the book aims to highlight the efforts made by the Relics Preservation Institute in safeguarding and promoting Hue’s treasured heritages while providing a valuable source of reference to cultural researchers and managers as well as enthusiasts of Hue heritage and architecture.
