The online tour is officially launched on September 12. Those interested can follow the museum fanpage of https://www.facebook.com/BTLSQG.VNMH for the tour registration.

Through the tour, extensive artifacts of the Ly (1009-1225) and Tran (1225-1400) dynasties in the 3D images help the audience learn about the development and the role of these two dynasties in Vietnamese history.

Dai Viet, the name of Vietnam under the Ly and Tran dynasties, was known as a prosperous kingdom in Asia.

According to local historians, this period marked the golden age of Vietnam’s history. Economically, it saw the development of agriculture with a complex irrigation network (with the construction of the Red River dike) and the formation of traditional handicrafts.

In terms of religion, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism co-existed peacefully and exerted great influence on people’s life.

Under the Ly and Tran dynasties, Dai Viet also reached the peak of cultural development. One important achievement in the Ly-Tran dynasties was the introduction of Nom scripts, Vietnam’s own writing system based on the reform of Chinese Han scripts.

In addition, this period also was also splendorous in terms of education, science, culture, art, history, and law. Temple of Literature - the first university of Vietnam was built during the period.

Meanwhile, Thang Long (the old name of Hanoi capital) was officially recognized as the imperial city of Dai Viet with the Proclamation on the Transfer of the Capital to Hanoi in 1010 by King Ly Thai To.

The 3D Tour titled  ‘Following the flow of history: Dai Viet culture under Ly and Tran dynasties’ is an initiative of the Volunteer Club of the Vietnam National Museum of History.
