The People’s Committee of northern Quang Ninh province is working with the local authorities of Bac Giang , Hai Duong and related departments to compile a dossier in pursuit of the world heritage status for Yen Tu complex. The latest dossier will replace the one currently posted on the website of the UNESCO World Heritage Center. Initially, authorities of the three provinces held many meetings and symposiums to clarify outstanding values of the complex, and took first steps to compile the dossier.
Set on the Dong Trieu range, The Complex of Yen Tu Monuments and Landscape combines four clusters of stunning national historical relics: the historical site and charming landscape of Yen Tu (Uong Bi city of Quang Ninh), the Tran Dynasty historical relic area (Dong Trieu town of Quang Ninh), the Western Yen Tu relic and landscape area (Bac Giang), and the Con Son - Kiep Bac - Thanh Mai complex (Hai Duong).
Yen Tu complex is also the cradle of the Vietnamese Zen Buddhism where King-Monk Tran Nhan Tong (1258 - 1308) led a religious life as a hermit. The complex is a harmonious blend of beautiful nature landscapes and ancient architectural structures with vivid cultural values. Home to numerous historical relics, architectural - artistic relics, archaeological relics, and scenic landscapes, it has been considered one of the most essential cultural heritages of the country.
Until now, Vietnam has got eight world heritage sites, recognized by UNESCO including Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, Citadel of Ho Dynasty, Complex of Hue Monuments, Ha Long Bay, Hoi An Ancient Town, My Son Sanctuary, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, and Trang An Landscape Complex.
