Tomb of Gia Long

Tomb in Hue

Emperor Gia Long founded the Nguyen dynasty in 1802 and ruled until 1819. Both the emperor and his queen are buried here. Careful restoration was almost complete at the time of writing, and it is envisaged the Tomb of Gia Long will also be offered as an option on boat trips. It is around 14km south of Hue and 3km from the west bank of the Perfume River.
