The ceramic architecture with his throne up 3 levels - is the highlight of this tomb. Beautiful structure made by taxing local farmers heavily. Some eccentricities of Ming Mang is there to see / where he makes soldiers statues smaller than him - so that nobody towers him. Lovey frescos of the dragon. A must watch - better than the... More

This tomb has some very nice buildings, but it is also located in a stunning landscape. It is worth a visit.

This was the only one of the mausoleums that we visited. We got there by boat which took almost two hours but on a nice day is a good way of seeing the Perfume River and the countryside. You can come back in twenty minutes by car or going by bike is also a good way to get there. It's... More

It is worth visiting. The place is quiet and solemn. The place was copied of the real world for the deseased emperor to be able to spend his life after his death without any trouble.

This was part of our bike tour with Mr. Von. I'm glad it was part of his tour. He was very informative and the site was quite interesting but I don't think we would have bothered if it wasn't on his tour

All tombs are worth a visit once. Good architecture. Nothing much to see! But just to understand the history behind the tomb and why it was built.

I opted to visit this tomb which is abit further off from town and travelled there by private taxi which also took me to the tomb of Khai Dinh. I love the serenity and the fengshui layout of this place and am sure King Minh Mang is enjoying lying peacefully here. There are several gates and temples to pass through... More

I enjoyed the walk although it was raining but that didn't stop me from checking this place. I actually enjoyed the beautiful garden and lake and it's just so peaceful. if you read about it's history you can appreciate it more actually but if not its still gorgeous.

After seeing the amazing Tu Duc tomb, we came here second and it was a bit anti-climatic. The linear progression from gate to grave was predictable for the most part. They have fenced off sections you can't go to and much of the grounds and architecture was the same as the other tombs. The use of water was a wee... More
