After over a century, Thai Hoa Palace inside the Hue Imperial Citadel where Nguyen kings and functionaries once convened for political discussions have been dismantled for major restoration.
|Over the past two days, dozens of workers have participated in the dismantling. The roof tile system was removed first.|
|The system of stone pillars in the palace corridor is carefully wrapped with plastic bags and wooden frames.|
|Wooden bars that are already rotten will be removed.|
|Along with the dismantling, artisans from the northern Ha Nam Province hastened to hew wooden poles to replace the termite-infested ones.|
