Photographer's Note

Minh Mang was one of the emperors who ruled Hue from 1820 to 1840.

In his life time, he himself designed his tomb; however, he was not laid to rest until 1843 when this tomb was completed by his successor, two years after his death.

Minh Mang's tomb is a typical architectural compound comprising of 40 buildings and structures which include palaces, temples, pavilions and many other buildings.

The majesty and symmetry of this complex is impressive and one of the chief attractions of this Vietnamese city.
