Hoa Lu is known as the first capital of Vietnam with a wide range of historical landmarks. In 968, King Dinh Bo Linh of Dai Co Viet (an old name of Vietnam) built his capital in Hoa Lu and ruled until 980.

Afterward, Hoa Lu existed for almost 30 years of the Early Le dynasty (980-1009) and 1 year of the Ly dynasty (1009-1010). In 1010, King Ly Thai To moved it to Thang Long (Ha Noi now). Hoa Lu has preserved many antique temples and relic sites of Vietnam.
