The central area of Imperial Citadel of Thang Long-Hanoi has played an important role in the history of Vietnam. This city was founded in the 9th century, when northern Vietnam was still under the rule of Tang Dynasty. General Gao Pian established Dai La Citadel, which is the predecessor of Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. In 1010, Ly Cong Uan, the emperor of Ly Dynasty of Vietnam, moved its capital to this city and changed its name to " Thang Long ", which lasted for nearly a thousand years. The long history of this city has left many cultural relics and historic sites, in this case, the central area of Imperial Citadel of Thang Long has been listed as a world cultural heritage. The archaeological excavation of No.18 archaeological site of Hoang Dieu Street has found a great deal of information about the layout, palace construction, aristocratic life, rights inheritance and cultural exchange of Imperial Citadel of Thang Long.
