The To Mieu is dedicated to the Nguyen emperors ruling from the Hué´s Purple City. Gia Long and his successors have their altars here.
The building looks rather humble, without elaborated decorations. Its facade consists of quite impressive number of door-sections divided by pillars.
The size of yard in front of the temple gives an idea about the extent of ceremonies which took place here.
The building is quite long... photo: Krystyna Kierebinski, March 2012
Inside each altar is dedicated to the specific emperor starting from the left with the Emperor Gia Long.
