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.

Tho Cong Altar

Imperial Hué, South EastPosted by Krystyna Kierebinski Sat, November 10, 2012 19:14:48

In every Vietnamese village the altar dedicated to the Spirit of the Soil could be found. So was even the case on the soil of the Imperial City.

Facing the Trieu Mieu temple one had the altar on the left hand-side while on opposite side its counterpart was standing. Probably the altar worshiping another deity.
