Forbidden Citadel opens, 1,000-year-old Thang Long reappears (February 08, 2005)

The stone dragons at the Kinh Thien Temple.
VietNamNet – The Hanoi Ancient Citadel reopened to welcome visitors for just the second-ever time.

The Hanoi Museum announced that during Tet, it would have two sections displaying documents about the 1,000-year-old Thang Long citadel and Hanoi’s revolutionary past.

The visitors will have a chance to admire two pairs of stone dragons at the Kinh Thien Temple which provide evidence of the ancient citadel. Also on display are 600 images and items from the resistance wars from Hanoi’s past.

However, relics from the Ba Dinh site will not be on display after being shown several times to the public.

The citadel will remain open until May 20, 2005. It’s just the second time it has been thrown open after the first time last year.
