I thought after a morning of the Imperial city the kids 9 and 12 wouldn’t stomach much more but this was really worth it and beautiful artwork. Loved the dragon ceiling and the artworks inspiring. But there sure were a lot of stairs!

This tomb is a relatively new build (around the 1920"s I think), but that takes nothing away from it at all. The architecture is a mixture of Vietnamese and French and I think there were other influences as well, but they all work well together....More

This place is a must see in my opinion. The area is just very idyllic with great Vietnamese architecture and statues everywhere. I didn't know about this place before I went but I am really glad I got to see it.
