HomeHue Travel Guides → Tu Duc’s Tomb



The tomb was built between 1864-1867 on Duong Xuan mountain in Duong Xuan Thuong village, on the bank of the Perfume river, 8km from Hue city. It was built among an elegant garden with peaceful lake and pavilion complex. It consists of 50 monuments surrounded by a 1500m wall.

Being a romantic architecture, it is like a fairyland with extreme poetic traits, making it a lifetime dream and a world for the eternal life of the King after his death. Almost every poetic element seems to be embedded in this tomb. Moreover, man-made elements were built and placed in the main areas to achieve perfect harmony.

Tu Duc’s tomb is both one of the most wonderful works of royal architecture of the Nguyen dynasty and is a romantic picture of muntains and lakes
