February 13, 2024

HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng paid tribute to the kings and ancestors who made enormous dedications to the country at Kính Thiên Palace, part of the Imperial Citadel of Thăng Long, in Hà Nội on Tuesday. He was accompanied by Politburo member and Secretary of the Hà Nội Party Committee Đinh Tiến Dũng, Secretary of the Party Central Committee and Chief of the Party Central Committee’s Office Lê Minh Hưng, along with other officials of the Party and Hà Nội. Talking to the staff of the relic site, General Secretary Trọng said the Thăng Long Imperial Citadel embodies the quintessence of the national culture and also witnessed successive feudal dynasties constructing and defending the country, which contributed to the time-honoured history and culture of Việt Nam. During the Nguyễn Dynasty (1802-1945), a new citadel was built under the reign of King Gia Long, but Kính Thiên Palace still formed an important part there. This palace was renamed Long Thiên in 1841.
