The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has assigned the Vietnam Institute for Culture and Arts to make a dossier on Oc Eo-Ba The relic and submit to UNESCO to seek recognition as the world cultural heritage site.

The 450ha Oc Eo relic is located in the area of Sap – Ba The Mountain, Thoai Son district, the Mekong Delta province of An Giang.

This is a well-known relic, first excavated by French archaeologist Louis Malleret in 1944, which is believed to have been a prosperous commercial port of the once-powerful Phu Nam kingdom 2,000 years ago.
