Tomb of Khai Dinh Tours

9 Reviews
Built as a monument and mausoleum for the Nguyen Emperor, Khai Dinh, this impressive tomb is located on a steep slope at the foot of Mount Chau Chu near Hue. The structure is an architectural blend of Vietnamese and Western influences that took 11 years to build, with the construction beginning in 1920 and finishing in 1931.

Upon crossing the gateway to the imperial tomb, visitors must climb 37 steps and proceed up further levels to reach the extravagant main building of Thien Dinh. The walls here are adorned with designs carved from porcelain and glass, while the floor is covered with enameled flowers. Above, the room’s elaborate ceiling features nine depictions of intricately designed dragons amid swirling clouds. At the centre of the main room sits the bronze statue of Khai Dinh, his altar, and his grave beneath.

Practical Info
