Buddhist college to be rejuvenated
Viet Nam News, 19 August 2011

The Dong Duong Buddhist College, a National Heritage site, would be given back its splendid beauty, a conference on the preservation of cultural relics in central Quang Nam Province was told on Wednesday.

As one of the largest centres in Southeast Asia, the Buddhist college, located in a jungle, is now in ruins. Sang tower, one of the last remaining vestiges, is close to toppling down, enforced by rotten wood alone.

“I am afraid that the tower would not be able to withstand heavy rains,” Nguyen Thuong Hi, who spends a great deal of time on preservation work in the province, said.
