A stone pathway connected to the southern Gate of the Ho Dynasty Citadel in central Thanh Hoa province has been unearthed below the existing road surface.

Head of the team from the Archaeology Institute Tran Anh Dung said that this beautiful stone path was built under the Ho Dynasty in the late 14th century.

“We don’t dare to compare it with other similar heritages in the world but it can be said that this is Vietnam’s most beautiful ancient stone road built under the Ho Dynasty,” Dung said.
