The event is being held by the Thang Long–Hanoi Heritage Preservation Centre to mark the 50th anniversary of the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (Convention 1972).

The exhibition introduces a number of precious metal artefacts, from jewelry, golden parts of utensils to royal swords and others.

It comprises three zones, including one for artefacts from Ly and Tran Dynasties and another for those from Early Le, Mac and Revival Le Dynasties.

Among the exhibits are various pieces of ceramics used as decoration inside the royal palace and those serving royal families both daily and on special occasions, such as festivals and Kings’ birthday and coronation ceremonies. There is a terra-cotta pot from Tran Dynasty, the largest of its kind ever found, reported VNA.
