Visiting ancient Emperor Tombs

Hue was once known as the country "amidst the tombs," according to famous musician Trinh Cong Son. Few travelers to Hue nowadays do not pay a visit to the Nguyen Emperors' tomb.

There are seven notable Nguyen King's tombs in Hue, all of them are hundred-year old and feature unique architecture. Not to mention, Hue Imperial City is home to the Nguyen lords' tombs.


The seven graves of the Nguyen Kings are deserving of a distinctive focus of Hue tourism. Visits to the Mausoleums in Hue would never make visitors feel dead, frightened or cold, nor would they sense a deplorable and intimidating feeling when standing before the Egyptian pharaohs' overly large pyramids. Man remains the theme of building and nature at Hue's graves.

Notably, the tombs of the Nguyen Kings have been incorporated into Thua Thien Hue's tourism development. Well-known tombs, including Minh Mang Tomb, Tu Duc Tomb, and Khai Dinh tomb, are must-see sights on Hue tour itineraries.


In truth, Tu Duc tomb is regarded as a poetic masterpiece, a naturalistic painting that suggests a "romantic soul." It is the uniqueness of Hue's monuments, as exemplified by the Tu Duc Tomb, that has turned this sort of tourism into a specialty, found nowhere else than Hue.

Obviously, the tombs of the Nguyen rulers may be added to the list of tourist attractions while exploring the Perfume River upstream, which is home to other well-known landmarks like Thien Mu pagoda and Hon Chen Temple...
