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.

Thai Mieu Temple

The Thai Mieu temple housed several altars dedicated to Nguyen lords who ruled in times before the Tay Son revolt. These lords, titled Chua, were worshiped for their merits in bringing the Nguyen clan to power.

On the square yard surrounding Thai Mieu small building were erected for the purpose of prayer, meditation, contemplation, or other kind of spiritual thoughts.
