Royal temple of the Nguyen Emperors

Southern of Hue, there are eight splendid royal tombs of the Nguyen Emperors, situated among the hills on the banks of the Hương River. Often designed while the emperor was still alive, each mausoleum was built to serve as a palace for the afterlife. Among them, the Tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, with its lotus-filled lake and central pavilion and the simple and serene Tomb of Khai Dinh are the most interesting.
