The port city of Hue and the tomb of the emperor

The first mention of this city dates back to the thirteenth century AD, when this territory by the sea was a king from the Vietnamese Chan dynasty, gave it to his daughter, Princess Huyen Tran (Huyền Trân) on the day of her marriage. And, in the future, in the transition of this territory from the property of one reigning person to another, the city of Hue gradually turned into a fairly large administrative and commercial center of Vietnam. The famous tomb of the emperor You Tuk (Royal Tomb Tu Duc) appeared only in 1864, when the Emperor You Dyk, in accordance with established tradition, began to build this architectural complex, which until his death was used as his government residence.

In this case, it is worth noting and this feature of the construction of this historic monument, as the fact that the emperor You Duc was a fairly wealthy man and did not spare his money to his other residence. With this in mind, the most interesting facts from the life of the emperor remained etched not only on the wall murals of the imperial palace, but also on a huge twenty-ton granite stone located in one of the parks. Emperor You Duc ordered his chroniclers to conduct their own somewhat original diary of the biography of everything that is happening, both in his state and in his palace.
