(VOV) -The US Department of State will use non-refundable aid to fund part of the US$30,507 Trieu To Temple preservation and restoration project in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hue Citadel.

The Hue Relics Preservation Centre has committed VND30 million to the project, which will focus on reinforcing the temple’s wooden frames and preserving and restoring its altars.
