Hanoi’s ancient citadel unearthed during car park constructionBreaking News
The citadel was discovered early in 2003 during excavations to rebuild the Ba Dinh Hall Complex, the seat of Vietnam’s legislature.
After conducting a thorough archeological search of the site, researchers discovered layers of structures built on top of each other and millions of artifacts dating back to the 7th century that detailed long-lost history of the ancient capital.
The citadel was inaugurated as a museum for the public in October 2003.
