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.

The Bell and the Drum

The yard in front of the The Mieu temple is from the south limited by the wall diversified by the big Hien Lam pavilion in the middle and two smaller constructions on either side of it. These are the bell- and the drum-towers. Both instruments were and are the obligatory elements of the religious ceremonies.
