Five Sites Join List Of Hanoi's National Relics
They are Hoan Kiem Lake and Ngoc Son temple complex, Tay Dang communal house and the temples of Phu Dong, Hat Mon and Trung Sisters, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.
Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam presented certificates recognising the five sites to representatives during a ceremony held in Hanoi last Saturday.
Municipal People's Committee deputy chairman Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc vowed to ensure that the five sites were well preserved for future generations.
"The city expects to receive further assistance from ministries as well Hanoians and overseas Vietnamese to make sure that such precious cultural jewels last forever," she said.
Ngoc Son Temple on Hoan Kiem Lake is situated in the heart of Hanoi and is one of the city's tourist hotspots.
Phu Dong Temple in Gia Lam district was first built by King Hung Vuong VI before it was rebuilt in the 11th century by King Ly Thai To.
The Hat Mon and Trung Sisters temples worship the two Trung ladies who rebelled against Chinese rule in 40 AD and are regarded as national heroines of Vietnam.
The Tay Dang communal house was built in the late 16th century in Ba Vi district and is famous for its architecture.
Hanoi has nine special national relic sites.
