• Hon Chen Temple
• Tu Duc Tomb
Emperor Tự Đức was the 4th Emperor of the Nguyễn Dynasty of Vietnam and reigned from 1847-1883. Emperor Tu Duc enjoyed the longest reign of any monarch of the Nguyen dynasty. Although he had over a hundred wives and concubines, he was unable to father a son (possibly he became sterile after contracting smallpox). Thus, it fell to him to write his own epitaph on the deeds of his reign. He felt this was a bad omen, but the epitaph can still be found inscribed on the stele in the pavilion just to the east of the Emperor's tomb. This stele is the largest of its type in Vietnam, and had to be brought here from a quarry over 500 kilometers away--a trip that took four years.
• Khai Dinh Tomb
Emperor Khải Định (啟定) (Nguyen Buu Dao) was the 12th Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam.Emperor Khai Dinh (1885-1925) ruled Vietnam for 9 years. His tomb took 11 years to complete. Construction began in 1920 and was completed in 1931. Under Khai Dinh, Western culture and influence began to seep into Vietnam. The king himself visited France in 1922. As a result, his tomb has many elements of Western architecture. In fact, of all the tombs, Khai Dinh's probably least resembles oriental architecture.
• Minh Mang Tomb
Minh Mang ruled from 1820 to 1840 but was not laid to rest until 1843 when this tomb designed during his rule was completed by his successor.
