“The prison is a popular place for students to learn about the Vietnamese revolution. But the relic site is badly deteriorated and in need of immediate renovation,” said De.

According to the Binh Dinh Department of Culture and Sports, the province has more than 130 ranked relics, including two special national monuments and 34 national-level monuments, most of them need some help.

Recently, the provincial authorities asked relevant ministries for financial support for renovation work between now and 2025. The province plans to renovate and restore special historical and cultural relic sites, architectural works, and other cultural heritages.

We have also prepared to allocate State financial resources to the renovation work in accordance with the Law on Cultural Heritage.”
