February 16, 2024

The Indian expert team participating in the restoration project of the ancient Dong Duong Buddhist Monastery in Quang Nam Province, central Vietnam has submitted proposals to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism for review and consideration. These proposals mark the initial steps in the restoration process of the Dong Duong Buddhist Monastery, which holds the status of a special national relic and is situated in Thang Binh District within the province. The team, affiliated with the Archaeological Survey of India under the Indian Ministry of Culture, arrived in the province in late 2023 to conduct a survey for the restoration of the Dong Duong Buddhist Monastery.
