Hué in time

Hué in time

About the Blog

What´s left of the Old Hué gives a vague idea of how the Citadel and Imperial City looked like during the times of the Nguyen dynasty. Was the city as enchanting as its remains are striking with their absence? What was the ideal of beauty? Who were the artists? Which details are authentic and what is much later translation of former splendor?
Presuming that I´m not the only person interested, adding the great outreach of internet, the blog may be a platform for us who want to know more and who have something to tell about the city of Hué. In time.

Guards and Chariots

Imperial Hué, South EastPosted by Krystyna Kierebinski Sat, November 10, 2012 17:52:23

After walking the Royal Esplanade and visiting the Throne Hall one may continue towards the Forbidden City or turn right, eastwards, and enter the small area where the long barrack was standing. Here, close to the main gate, the palace chariots were kept.

Near by were two other buildings housing the palace guards.
