In recent working days, most members of the NA agreed to preserve these valuable historical relics. "In my visit to the site, I was astonished by the beautiful old architecture", said deputy Pham Chuyen "We talk a lot about ancient palaces and relics, but there is no other place in Vietnam with so many antiques".

"Proper conservation today will secure an resource in the history of Hanoi for future generations", emphasised Mr Chuyen.
