Hue’s heritage celebrate 25th anniversary of UNESCO recognition

The Complex of Hue Monuments has celebrated the 25th anniversary of UNESCO’s recognition as a site of world cultural heritage (December 1993).

After the war, the complex was seriously ravaged with 400 out of 1,400 works in dilapidated conditions.

On February 12, 1996, the Prime Minister issued Decision No.105 that approved a project to preserve and uphold the values of the complex for the 2010-2020 period.

Hue has been hailed by UNESCO as the leading Vietnamese locality in terms of heritage preservation, which turned it into a model centre for technological heritage transfer in the Asia-Pacific.
