This is one of the meaningful activities to celebrate the National Day (2/9), organized by four units of the Hue Monuments Conservation Center, the Center for Scientific and Cultural Activities Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam (Temple of Literature), the National Archives Center I and the National Archives Center IV. The exhibition will open on the morning of August 26 at the Thai Hoc Courtyard, Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam, Hanoi.

There will be more than 70 images of woodblocks, official documents, poetry on Hue royal architecture and 16 woodblock versions to introduce three Nguyen Dynasty documentary heritages of prominent themes such as the national name through the woodblocks, the system of former competitive-examinations of the Nguyen dynasty through official documents and the national spirit through the poetry on Hue royal architecture. Among these three heritages, the woodblocks of the Nguyen Dynasty are the first world documentary heritage in Vietnam recognized by UNESCO.
