The area is full of rice fields broken by picturesque limestone mountains. The capital at Hoa Lu covered an area of 300 hectares (3 kilometers squared) and included both the inner and outer citadels. It included defensive earthen walls, palaces, temples, and shrines and was surrounded and protected by mountains of limestone.
