The work was designed in scientific architecture to store and preserve important records, documents, and papers of the court at that time. This was a rare “Archive Pavilion” of the monarchy period that have been preserved quite intactly in Hue.

In 2021, Hue Monuments Conservation Center put this historical relic into operation to establish a center to store documents and research about Hue cultural heritage.
