NDO –An exhibition entitled ‘Calligraphy of Nguyen dynasty Kings’ opened in Hanoi on January 3 as an event to celebrate the Vietnam Archives Day.

Administrative documents signed by Nguyen dynasty Kings (1802 -1945) were recognised as a UNESCO world documentary heritage.

Works on display at the exhibition include more than 100 documents and papers that have the autographs of 10 Nguyen dynasty kings, providing viewers with a better understanding of the literary and calligraphic styles, thoughts and opinions of the kings about specific issues.

The exhibits also provide a reference source of a type of administrative document of Vietnam in the past while revealing fascinating information on the country’s social life from early 19th century to the middle of the 20th century.

Hosted by the State Records and Archives Department, the exhibition is open to the public for free at the National Archives Centre No.1’s exhibition house, 5 Vu Pham Ham street, Cau Giay district.
