Man working for UNESCO paints carving on an Imperial City building at Hue

A man in a uniform working for UNESCO paints a carving above a red and gold column of an Imperial City building at Hué. Although many buildings in the Imperial City were damaged in 1968 by U.S. bombing during the Vietnam War, restoration is underway. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared the Imperial City a World Heritage Site, and they are overseeing the site's preservation and reconstruction.
