Since the 2nd century AD, many emirates including Lam Ap - Champa (to the north Central) were found in Central Vietnam. This was considered as the convergence and development process of Vietnamese history in pre- and prohistory, particularly Sa Huynh culture in Central Vietnam.

Thua Thien Hue is a part of Champa kingdom during nearly 12 centuries (from the 2nd to the 14th century). It was the place where cultural heritages were formed.  From 1306, Chau O and Chau Ly became parts of Dai Viet. The appearance of Vietnamese in this area allowed Dai Viet culture to have a great impact on the south Vietnam. When Vietnamese moved and resided in this new land, they respected, inherited and promoted cultural achievements left by Champa citizens.
