Stone road underneath the ground at Ho Citadel #Archaeology

A stone road dating back to the 14th century has been discovered at the remains of the Ho citadel complex in the central province of Thanh Hoa. The 2km road linking the citadel’s southern gate with the Nam Giao worship platform has been described as the “most beautiful old stone road ever built in the country”. Archaeologists excavated a total area of 1,500sq.m in front of the southern gate revealing blue stones as big as 1sq.m buried up to 1m below the surface. The road is thought to have been used by the king and the royal family when travelling between the citadel and nearby Nam Giao worship platform to pray to heaven for peace and prosperity at the peak of Don Son Mountain.
