CITADEL OF THE HO DYNASTY, Vietnam: was constructed in 1397. It was built according to feng shui principles, testifying to the flowering of neo-Confucianism in late 14th-century Viet Nam & its spread to other parts of east Asia. It demonstrates the use of space management & decoration to show the adoption of a Confucian concept of royal power within a predominantly Buddhist culture. The use of large blocks of stone testifies to the organizational power of the Neo-Confucian state.
