NDO – An exhibition on the history of Vietnam’s imperial examinations officially opened at the Van Mieu – Quoc Tu Giam (the Temple of Literature) in Hanoi on March 5.

On display are more than 50 documents and images showcasing the history of Vietnam’s examinations, which were selected from three world documentary heritages, including Nguyen Dynasty wood blocks, Nguyen Dynasty administrative documents, and the doctoral steles in Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam.

The exhibition was divided into three parts: the history of Vietnamese education and examinations over dynasties; Quoc Tu Giam – a high-ranking educational centre in monarchy; and the steles of outstanding doctors and laureates.

Visitors to the exhibition can learn more about exam regulations and the reward of the kings to candidates in the feudal period.

The event also aims to raise public awareness of the preservation and promotion of national cultural heritages and world documentary heritages.

The exhibition will run until April 5.
