The 1,000th Anniversary of Thang Long – Ha Noi, VietNam: 900th site UNESCO World Heritage List

Geschreven op 1-8-2010 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Iets anders Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

1000 Thang Long - Ha NoiThe Thang Long Imperial Citadel has become the 900th site to be inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The Citadel was built in the 11th century by the Ly Viet Dynasty, marking the independence of the Dai Viet.

It was constructed on the remains of a Chinese fortress dating from the 7th century, on drained land reclaimed from the Red River Delta in Hanoi. It was the centre of regional political power for almost 13 centuries without interruption.

The Imperial Citadel buildings and the remains in the 18 Hoang Dieu Archaeological Site reflect a unique South-East Asian culture specific to the lower Red River Valley, at the crossroads between influences coming from China in the north and the ancient Kingdom of Champa in the south.

The World Heritage Committee meeting in Brasilia has also inscribed new cultural sites in China, Tajikistan, France, the Netherlands, on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Historic monuments of Dengfeng, in the “Centre of Heaven and Earth” (China)
Mount Songshang is considered to be the central sacred mountain of China. At the foot of this 1500 metre high mountain, close to the city of Dengfeng in Henan province and spread over a 40 square-kilometre circle, stand eight clusters of buildings and sites, including three Han Que gates – remains of the oldest religious edifices in China –, temples, the Zhougong Sundial Platform and the Dengfeng Observatory. Constructed over the course of nine dynasties, these buildings are reflections of different ways of perceiving the centre of heaven and earth and the power of the mountain as a centre for religious devotion. The historical monuments of Dengfeng include some of the best examples of ancient Chinese buildings devoted to ritual, science, technology and education.

Sarazm, which means “where the land begins”, is an archaeological site bearing testimony to the development of human settlements in Central Asia, from the 4th millennium BCE to the end of the 3rd millennium BCE. The ruins demonstrate the early development of proto-urbanization in this region. This centre of settlement, one of the oldest in Central Asia, is situated between a mountainous region suitable for cattle rearing by nomadic pastoralists, and a large valley conducive to the development of agriculture and irrigation by the first settled populations in the region. Sarazm also demonstrates the existence of commercial and cultural exchanges and trade relations with peoples over an extensive geographical area, extending from the steppes of Central Asia and Turkmenistan, to the Iranian plateau, the Indus valley and as far as the Indian Ocean.

On the banks of the Tarn river in south-west France, the old city of Albi reflects the culmination of a medieval architectural and urban ensemble. Today the Old Bridge (Pont-Vieux), the Saint-Salvi quarter and its church are testimony to its initial development (10th -11th  centuries). Following the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathar heretics (13th century) it became a powerful episcopal city. Built in a unique southern French Gothic style from local brick in characteristic red and orange colours, the lofty fortified Cathedral (late 13th century) dominates the city, demonstrating the power regained by the Roman Catholic clergy. Alongside the Cathedral is the vast bishop’s Palais de la Berbie, overlooking the river and surrounded by residential quarters that date back to the Middle Ages. The Episcopal City of Albi forms a coherent and homogeneous ensemble of monuments and quarters that has remained largely unchanged over the centuries.

    The Netherlands Government on October 5 presented the capital city of Hanoi with a new species of tulip named after Thang Long-Hanoi, as a special gift to mark the city’s 1,000th anniversary.

    At the presentation ceremony, Netherlands Ambassador to Vietnam Joop Scheffers said the new tulip strain was created by Dutch biologists. The tulip has tone values of red and yellow, the two colours of Vietnam’s national flag.

    The ambassador said the gift was a symbol of the fine traditional relations between the Netherlands and Vietnam and the Netherlands would soon transfer the technology to grow this tulip species to Hanoi. On behalf of Hanoi authorities and people, Vice Chairperson of the Municipal People’s Committee Ngo Thi Thanh Hang affirmed that the gift was significant and precious.

    She said together with the fine cooperation between the countries, the two capital cities – Hanoi and Amsterdam – also enjoyed effective cooperation and exchanges during past years.
