It was circled by arc rocky mountains, breathtaking landscapes; the empty place between the mountain sides was tightly built by the refined rick; and the floor was highly from 8 to 10 meters. The current image of Hoa Lu ancient capital is not whole, it is changed. This place is now built to worship two Kings: king Dinh- king Le on the past soil.
