The tomb of Emperor Tu Duc was constructed from 1864 to 1867 and served as a second imperial city where the emperor, who reigned from 1848-1883, came for relief from national and household concerns. The emperor's contemplative nature and poetic spirit was reflected in the landscaping and the arrangement of the 50 buildings. The tomb complex is divided into two main areas: the ritual area and the burial area. Emperor Tu Duc was an accomplished poet and wrote many of his poems here.
