Digital projects helps preserve Hue historical monuments

Digital project helps preserve Hue historical monuments. The Prime Minister approved an Adjusted Planning Framework for the Complex of Hue Monuments from 2010-2020 in June 2010, laying grounds for the province’s preservation work. As the result, more than 170 relics have been preserved, repaired and restored so far, including Ngo Mon (Meridian Gate), Dien Thai Hoa (Palace of Supreme Harmony), Hien Lam Cac (Pavilion of Radiant Benevolence from On-High), The Mieu (Complex of the Temple for the Worship of the Nguyen Emperors), Cung Truong Sanh (Truong Sanh Royal Palace), Dan Nam Giao (Esplanade of Sacrifice to the Heaven and Earth), Tomb of King Gia Long and Chua Thien Mu (Celestial Lady Pagoda).

DIGITAL PROJECTS HELPS PRESERVE HUE HISTORICAL  MONUMENTS:  A data digitization project has been implemented in the Complex of Hue Monuments in the central province of Thue Thien – Hue to improve the management and preservation of Tu Duc Tomb and An Dinh Palace. The project is a partnership between the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre, and two US firms – CyArk and Seagate Technology. Accordingly, all the data and images capturing Tu Duc Tomb and An Dinh Palace will be turned into photo-real 3D models to help enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the research, conservation, and restoration of Hue Monuments.

Director of the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre Phan Thanh Hai said CyArk and Seagate Technology are leading providers of data storage solutions in the world and this is the first time they have worked on an important cultural preservation project in Vietnam. Technologies provided by Seagate enable CyArk to store, protect and process safely the relevant data that it collects, he said.

To implement the project, CyArk conducted aerial surveys by unmanned aircraft drones, terrestrial laser scanning known as LiDAR, and field observation at Tu Duc Tomb and An Dinh Palace. CyArk will produce 3D models and architectural drawings to aid the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre in the conservation and management of the site.

Seagate and CyArk will support each other both in the field and the office with their data-storage solutions. Hai said the effectiveness of this project is not only reflected in the aspect of advanced storage technology to help manage, preserve Hue’s relic sites with 3D models and promote cultural values of the complex but also helps popularize knowledge of history, culture and architecture to people, especially youths, thus raising their awareness of protecting the national cultural heritage sites.

The digital preservation project also helps promote the global prominence value of Tu Duc Tomb – the relic site that has important cultural significance for Vietnamese people, he added. The Complex of Hue Monuments site has suffered from the effects of wars, as well as modern development and expanding human settlements. In addition, climate change and natural disasters such as floods are other potential problems for the long-term management of the monuments.

The central province of Thua Thien-Hue has put many efforts to preserve and restore relics of the UNESCO-recognized Complex. The province has allocated over 1.46 trillion VND (64.24 million USD) for funding the relic preservation and restoration between 1996 and 2017, including 933 billion VND (41 million USD) for the 2010-2017 period.

The Prime Minister approved an Adjusted Planning Framework for the Complex of Hue Monuments from 2010-2020 in June 2010, laying grounds for the province’s preservation work. As the result, more than 170 relics have been preserved, repaired and restored so far, including Ngo Mon (Meridian Gate), Dien Thai Hoa (Palace of Supreme Harmony), Hien Lam Cac (Pavilion of Radiant Benevolence from On-High), The Mieu (Complex of the Temple for the Worship of the Nguyen Emperors), Cung Truong Sanh (Truong Sanh Royal Palace), Dan Nam Giao (Esplanade of Sacrifice to the Heaven and Earth), Tomb of King Gia Long and Chua Thien Mu (Celestial Lady Pagoda).

The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre has carried out several studies to learn about ancient brick flooring, wells, and history of each monument inside the complex. It has also collected royal decrees of the Nguyen Dynasty, produced publications on royal records and heritages and made archives of Nha Nhac (Royal court music) – intangible heritage recognized by UNESCO  in 2003. The centre has been supported by international foundations, institutes and organizations from Japan, the US, France, Germany, and Poland, which provided funding for the conservation and training for its staff to improve their capacity. Japan has provided aid for relic conservation in Hue since 1990.

The first large-scale project with Japanese funding, 100,000 USD, was to restore the Ngo Mon – the main gate to the Hoang Thanh (Imperial City) and a symbol of Hue. A team of experts from Germany helped restore frescos in An Dinh Palace while those from Poland have supported the province in white ant prevention and restoration of To Mieu Temple Complex.

HUNG KING MUSEUM. VOV.VN – Part of the Hung Temple Historical Relic Complex, Hung King National Museum in Viet Tri city, boasts a unique architecture and embodies Vietnam’s glorious history. The museum is a source of pride for Vietnamese people. Built-in the late 1980s, Hung Vuong Museum is a popular destination. Its design is based on the Vietnamese people’s ancient philosophy that the earth was square and the sky was round. Covering nearly 1,000 square meters, the 2-story museum recalls a legend concerning Banh Chung (square sticky rice cake) and Banh Giay (round sticky rice cake).

The museum has nearly 700 original objects and thousands of reproductions which reveal Vietnam’s history from the stone age to the national construction period of the Hung Kings, the Hung Kings’ Temple, and the Hung Kings worshiping rituals. The museum welcomes thousands of visitors a day. It is most crowded on the Death Anniversary of the Hung Kings on the 10th day of the third lunar month.

Nguyen Thi Van Anh, Head of the Guide Team at the museum says she and her colleagues always do their best to teach visitors about Vietnam’s cultural and historical heritage. She said, “The Hung Kings Temple is a worshipping place for Vietnamese people. When they visit the Temple, they never miss a chance to also visit Hung Vuong Museum where many precious items are kept.” Museum visitors see production tools and other objects of the Vietnamese people in each historical period.

Nguyen Thu Huong, a visitor from Hanoi, says: “All Vietnamese people know the legend of Lac Long Quan-Au Co. Thousands of objects at the museum, impressively descended by the guides recall the legend. Visiting the museum and the Hung Kings Temple, I’m so proud of our national history.”

Dong Van Karst Plateau

With its earth heritage and unique culture of ethnic minority groups, the Dong Van Karst Plateau in Ha Giang province is one of the most spectacular destinations in Vietnam. Located deep inside the Plateau, Meo Vac district is almost untouched and favored by adventurists.

VOV.VN – With its earth heritage and unique culture of ethnic minority groups, the Dong Van Karst Plateau in Ha Giang province is one of the most spectacular destinations in Vietnam. Located deep inside the Plateau, Meo Vac district is almost untouched and favored by adventurists. From Ha Giang province, tourists take the national highway 4C for 43 kilometers to reach Quan Ba district.   

Passing over the bumpy Can Ty pass and through pine forests and round zigzagging roads, tourists will arrive in Dong Van Karst Plateau. Sitting 1,600 meters above sea level and covering 2,530 square kilometers, the Plateau shows the typical signs of the development of the earth’s crust. 80% of the plateau is open-cast lime. Dong Van is home to 139 geological heritages, of which 15 are international, 68 are national and 56 are local. In the area’s stone sediments, bio-archeologists have found many fossils which have preserved the history of the plateau in Dong Van in particular and Vietnam’s northeastern region.

Geological diversity and climate shifts over millions of years have created diverse and spectacular rock gardens and rock forests like the Khau Vai rock garden in Meo Vac district which have flower-shaped, bud-shaped, dragon-shaped, and tiger-shaped rocks among many others. There are several rock stacks that look like thousands of seabirds relaxing on the beach. In between the rock, gardens are high mountains and steep hills that make the karst plateau more spectacular.

Geologist Ho Tien Trung said, “According to the Vietnam Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources, and studies of Belgian speleologists, in this region, there are many important findings including the cave system. The discovery of thousands of meters of caves is significant to research and tourism development.” In the Dong Van Karst Plateau, Meo Vac is the most undeveloped area. Until 1965, there was only a small path leading to the township.

Now, a new path winding around the mountainside has been paved to traverse the Ma Pi Leng pass with the steep rocky mountain on one side and the peaceful Nho Que River on the other. The rocky outcrops, small waterfalls, terraced fields, and small thatched houses nestled behind rock walls and peach gardens create a stunningly picturesque landscape. Ma Pi Leng is a must-stop for tourists to the Dong Van Karst Plateau.

Tran Thanh Hoang, a guide in Ha Giang, said, “Tourists call Ma Pi Leng one of the 4 top passes in Vietnam’s northwest. Though it’s shorter than other passes, it’s the most difficult one. In the ethnic minority language, Pi Leng means nose bone which is straight and high. Previously, it was too high for a horse to climb up. Now, the road to the pass has been upgraded to become more level. The work was contributed to by the great efforts of many people. President Ho Chi Minh named it the Happiness Road in the hope that the road would bring happiness to the locals.”

In recent years, Meo Vac district has focused on promoting the development of culture-tourism, especially since the Dong Van Karst Plateau was recognized as a Global GeoPark in 2013. The local infrastructure has been upgraded to make traveling to the district easier. Many local festivals like the Khau Vai Love Market festival, buckwheat flower festival, Gau Tao festival of the Mong, Rain Praying festival of the Lo Lo, Long Tong festival of the Tay, Cap Sac festival of the Dao, and New Year Celebration of the Giay have been revived. The diverse festivals of the locals and the spectacular landscapes have drawn both Vietnamese and foreign tourists to Dong Van and Meo Vac.

Quan Ba – Ha Giang province

Quản Bạ is a rural district of Ha Giang province in the Northeast region of Vietnam

Quan Ba, a scenic district in northern Ha Giang province is a gateway to the Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark. High rocks, small, deep valleys, winding roads, and unique local culture make Quan Ba a tourist attraction. Located between 1,000 and 1,600 meters above sea level, Quan Ba district comprises a township and 12 communes inhabited by 16 ethnic groups, 60% of them Mong, 14% Dao, and 11% Tay. Quan Ba is the only place in Vietnam that is home to the Pu Y ethnic group of 880 people.

The Tay live in stilt houses with palm thatch. The Dao build their mud house and grow wet rice at the foot of the mountains. The Mong live in the high mountains and mainly cultivate maize. The local traditional crafts are weaving, carpentry, and pottery. The Tay, Mong, and Dao in Quan Ba embrace a rich treasury of folk cultures with numerous legends, fairy tales, poems, and folk tunes.

Quan Ba is full of exceptional sites such as the Dong Van Heaven Gate, the Can Ty walls, Kho My Tung Vai cave, and Thach Son Than mountain. On the Dong Van karst plateau are two limestone peaks that evoke the shape of two female breasts that are associated with a Mong legend about a fairy named Hoa Dao (peach blossom) who fell in love with a Mong man. They got married and had a little boy.

Furious, the Jade Emperor forced Hoa Dao to return to heaven. Upon leaving the earth, she left her breasts to feed her baby. Later, her two breasts turned into two mountains that the locals dubbed “Fairy Mountain”. Nguyen Tuan Khoa, a photographer from Hanoi said “Tourists, passing through Quan Ba, stop to contemplate the beautiful landscapes and these two breast-like mountains. I have been here several times and each time I have been strongly impressed.”

In Quan Ba, tourists can explore ethnic villages and hamlets like Hop Tien village’s brocade weaving craft, or the Tày Cultural Village in Tam Son township. They can also listen to Then singing and Tinh zither music and attend the rite of passage to adulthood of the Dao, hear the prayers for a good harvest of the Nung and Tay, join the Gau Tao feast of the Mong, and observe the worship of the forest genie by the Pu Y.

The Quan Ba, Quyet Tien, Tung Vai, and Trang Kim markets sell local products and specialties. It would be a shame to stay in the area without sampling ethnic culinary specialties like corn alcohol, smoked pork, farm pork, cornflour, and black-legged chicken. Quan Ba has landscapes of striking beauty and meeting its ethnic minorities is an unforgettable experience.
