The Hue Citadel complex was the place where nine Nguyen lords and 13 Nguyen Dynasty emperors chose to live and rule the country. The construction of the citadel took 31 years, from 1802 to 1833. Under the rule of these Nguyen kings, the tombs were designed to reflect their different temperaments, philosophies, and priorities.
TripAdvisor described Hue Citadel and Imperial Tombs as "a forgotten, almost mythological world" because of the moss-covered towers hidden in the hills and faded stone warriors proudly guarding the dead, among other features.
