Previous to the bombing of Hiroshima by the US forces, the Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Dome was called as the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall Subsequent to the bombing for a moment it was widely believed, that the Bomb dome was ground zero. Nevertheless, meticulous calculations reveal that the Bomb dome was 150 m away. But eh ground aero was a bit of Misnomer because the atom bomd exploded as planned roughly 2000ft (600m) above the city. .

A visitor visiting the bomb dome can witness the rubbles, formed as a result of bombing. The beams remain exposed. It’s doubtful as years go by, it will be difficult to preserve the bombed structure. The already damaged concrete and mortar is struggling to withstand against the cliamtic odds.
