Germany introduces Hue palace restoration

The An Dinh palace in Hue city.
The first is a tri-lingual book (Vietnamese, English, Germany) entitled An Dinh – Hue's Hidden Treasure, which details the preservation and restoration process of An Dinh palace. The major works in An Dinh palace are six mural paintings and ancient statues. The book has lively pictures and detailed captions to help readers appreciate the unique combination of Vietnamese classic style and Europe baroque style. The second work is an electronic version of the print book, a DVD in three languages.

Restoration began in June 2002 when Germany sent experts and contributed 17,580 euros to restore six wall paintings at the palace.  The project has a cost of over 444,000 euros, including 355,000 euros provided by Germany. continued>>
