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.

Hien Nho´n Gate

Imperial Hué, South EastPosted by Krystyna Kierebinski Sat, November 10, 2012 19:03:04

After leaving the temple compound through the three-door Tam Quan gate one would turn left and follow the surrounding wall. After passing the corner and some farther walking the Hien Nho´n gate can be reached. Through this three-door, lavishly decorated gate, authorized persons could enter the territory of the Imperial City.
