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.

Those canons had never been used. The purpose with possessing and exposing them was to reach the higher status by showing The Nguyens´modern military equipment.

With time these heavy weapons lost their deterring role as well as the prominent place. They are still close to the Citadel but exposed in more discrete way.
