7 Royal Tombs in Hue
The tombs are located along the banks of the Perfume River in the city. In general, all the tombs have royal art and architecture. Although there were 13 kings during Nguyen dynasty, only 7 tombs were built including ones for Gia Long, Minh Mang, Tu Duc, Khai Dinh, Duc Duc, Dong Khanh and Thieu Tri/ The first hree tombs are frequently visited by domestic and international tourists due to their glamorous architectural features.
In history, Hue has chosen to be the capital city by all Nguyen Lords. The royal complex of Hue has been officially recognized as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. It's situated on the northern bank of the Perfume River, with an area of 500 ha and a system of three circles of ramparts, namely from outside to inside: Kinh Thanh (Capital Citadel), Hoang Thanh (Royal Citadel) and Tu Cam Thanh (Forbidden Citadel). If you visit the Hue Citadel, it's better to hire a tourist guide in order to know everthing clearly about the place.
