A World Heritage-listed string of mausoleums built according to strict rules of geomancy, Royal Tombs feature the final resting place of six emperors of Vietnam's Nguyen dynasty. Huge ornate halls with gilded statues, countless mini-shrines, and life-sized blackened concrete figures of soldiers and their horses in paved terraced courtyards provide a glimpse of Vietnam's past imperial splendor. Built over the 19th and early 20th century, the tombs display a wealth symbolizing the Nguyen rulers' careful balancing of European powers. Browse around intricately carved temples, cross bridges over ponds and moats, and pass through impressive gates to understand the grandeur of former kings and their complex relations to colonial powers. Tour operators run excursions that cover all of the tombs; alternatively, hire your own guide for all the historical details.

A silent and peaceful place to visit and takes about 30-45 mins to finish seeing all of it and that includes photography as well. more »
