The Republic of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) on May 31 handed over a 3D film on the Ho Quyen relic site in the former imperial city of Hue to the city’s preservation centre.

The 10-minute film reenacts the Ho Quyen royal arena where tiger-elephant fights were staged in the audience of the King and the royal court as an offering ritual dedicated to the God and the Earth, under the Nguyen Dynasty (1558-1775).
