The hippo and her newborn at Dai Nam Zoo in Binh Duong Province, southern Vietnam, Wednesday

A hippopotamus gave birth to a calf at a zoo in southern Vietnam Wednesday.

Duong Thanh Phi, the director of Dai Nam Zoo in Binh Duong Province, said staff had stayed overnight to midwife the mother after she had skipped meals Tuesday.

The calf weighs 25 kilograms, is suckling, and swims on its own, he said.

Its four-year-old parents had been bought from an Israeli zoo three years ago for 34,000 euros (US$42,600).

The hippopotamus, meaning “river horse” in ancient Greek, threatened by loss of access to fresh water and poaching, is classified as “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Ho Dynasty Citadel now World Cultural Heritage - Vietnam Beautiful
Culture

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) on June 16 presented a certificate to Vietnam, officially recognising the Ho Dynasty Citadel as the World Cultural Heritage.

The citadel, also known as the Tay Do, An Ton, Tay Kinh or Tay Giai citadels, was Vietnam’s former capital under the Ho Dynasty from 1400 to 1407.

Built in 1397 on an area of about 150ha, the structure was supervised by Ho Qui Ly, a top Tran Dynasty mandarin, who later took the throne in 1400 and moved the capital from Thang Long (the former name of Hanoi today) to the citadel.

The stone structure, one of very few fortresses of its kind in the world, has four arched gates facing north, south, east and west. Despite the passage of time, the four gates remain intact.

It was recognised by UNESCO as the World Cultural Heritage on June 27, 2011. According to the UN organisation, the citadel buildings "represent an outstanding example of a new style of Southeast Asian imperial city".

Addressing the ceremony, National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung congratulated Thanh Hoa province on having an ancient architectural work honoured globally.

“The Ho Dynasty Citadel, together with other world tangible and intangible heritages, will enrich the thousand-year-old civilisation of the Vietnamese nation, helping international friends further understand Vietnam and its people, and opening up new opportunities for tourism development and cultural research in the country,” said Hung.

He said that the recognition requires Vietnam to conserve and promote cultural values of the citadel and other heritage sites in line with the Vietnam Heritage Law and the UN Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Thanh Hoa province, about 150km south of Hanoi, plans to pour more than US$1 million into the restoration of the citadel to make it an attractive destination for domestic and foreign holiday-makers.

It will launch two special tours of the citadel to introduce heritage tourism potential in the province.

Apart from the Ho Dynasty Citadel, Vietnam has six other natural and cultural heritages recognised by UNESCO: the former imperial capital of Hue, Ha Long Bay, Hoi An Ancient Town, My Son Sanctuary, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, and Thang Long royal citadel in Hanoi.
