India to restore relics complex in Vietnam

India will fund a US$3 million (INR15.3 crore) restoration project will be carried out by Indian experts at My Son Relics Complex in Vietnam. According to the Relic Management of Vietnam’s Quang Nam province, the project is supported by India’s government as well as experienced Indian architects and archaeologists. The project, part of several activities in celebration of Vietnam-India Friendship Year 2012, which commemorates the 40th anniversary of the two countries’ relations, will be carried out from 2012 to 2016.

Earlier this year, a group of experts from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), under the Institute of Archaeology, arrived in My Son to study and prepare restoration works.
