Tomb of Minh Mang

Tomb of Minh Mang is one of the two largest compounds of royal tombs in Hue. It spans an expansive area of 18 hectares in Cam Khe village, 12 kilometres from the city centre. The construction was started in 1840 by King Minh Mang but completed three years later by his successor, King Thieu Tri as the father king passed away while everything was going on. The whole premises consists of 40 structures, including gates, palaces, temples, pavilions, altars, yards, statues, etc. All are enclosed in a concrete rampart of 3m high and 0.5m thick. You may enter it by two side gates. The imposing Central Gate (Dai Hong Mon) was opened only once for the King’s coffin to be brought in. The tomb’s magnificent architecture represents nothing more than the majesty of the emperor.
