Imperial Tomb of Dong Khanh Reviews
A must see as it really is- Wow. We visited the tomb as part of a tour with Deluxe Group tours and certainly worth a visit. best tomb we have visited. more »
molto interessante! (non direi bella perchè non è proprio di buon gusto...) sia la parte esterna, piena di statue tenute comunque bene e di guglie, sia l'interno, decorato in maniera particolare. sopr... more »Very interesting! (I wouldn't say beautiful because it's not really tasteful...) both the outside, full of well-maintained statues and spires, and the interior, decorated in a particular way. especially the tomb room, a very bright and colorful whole mosaic
On my mind the second best tomb I've visited in Hue. Definitely interesting, but keep in mind that almost all tombs have a very similar architecture, so if you visit the others you don't necessarily need this one.
This is one of the most interesting sites I've visited in Hue, and actually found this tomb more fascinating than the Palace and Citadel. There's a unique style and architecture to this place that really testifies to how much the French had entwined themselves into Vietnamese life. French culture appears not so much fused as forced upon Vietnam's extent, ancient culture. The setting for the tomb is remarkable, absolutely picturesque.
