Imperial Tombs

                       

Red and Gold

Colors of royalty

Minh Mang

One of the "entrance gates" for the tomb of a very popular king

Minh Mang II

Yet another passageway to the tomb

Beautiful Restoration

These floors were magnificantly restored to their original beauty

Huge Gardens

All of the Kings tombs included gorgeous and huge gardens. The Nguyen dynasty emporers each had a tomb of their own

Khai Dinh Tomb

Built in 1923-1931. A very strange combo of architecture and art-deco ceramic detailing. It was built during a very poor time in Viet Nam for a king that was mostly disliked. It is in bad shape
