The highest artistic value of the Mausoleum is the interior decoration of Thien Dinh Palace. The three naves in the palace are decorated with reliefs made of porcelain and colored glass. The Khai Dinh Tomb is the only royal tomb that we know exactly where the emperor’s coffin is.
Last but not least in our Hue Royal Tombs Tour is the Tu Duc Tomb- the royal tombs of the 4th emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty. This is the special royal tomb because it is not only the burial area but also the 2nd residence of the Emperor. The Royal tomb of Tu Duc reflects exactly the characteristics of the romantic and talented emperor who is good at poetry.
The tomb of Tu Duc with a gentle appearance, located in a charming landscape of mountains and lakes, is considered one of the most beautiful mausoleum architectural works of the Nguyen Dynasty in the 19th century.
