Between 1802 and 1945, HUE was the imperial capital of the Nguyễn Dynasty.
For city tour in HUE we will visit Thien Mu Pagoda built in 1601 on the order of the first Nguyen lords, Nguyễn Hoàng, who at that time was the governor of Thuận Hóa (now known as Huế). According to the royal annals, Hoang while touring the vicinity was told of the local legend in which an old lady, known as Thiên Mụ (literally "celestial lady"), dressed in red and blue sat at the site, rubbing her cheeks. She foretold that a lord would come and erect a pagoda on the hill to pray for the country's prosperity. She then vanished after making her prophecy. Upon hearing this, Hoang ordered the construction of a temple at the site, thus the beginning of Thiên Mụ Pagoda. Next to Imperial Tomb Of Tu Duc ~ the most beautiful imperial tomb of all, a huge peaceful lake stone bridges and wooden constructions. Tu Duc tomb integrates seamlessly with the landscape that surrounds it.
Enjoy lunch at local restaurant, later we will continue to visit the Imperial City (UNESCO World Heritage Site) ~ the grounds of the Imperial City were surrounded by a wall 2KM BY 2KM, and the walls were surrounded by a moat. The water from the moat was taken from the Huong River (Perfume River) that flows through Huế. This structure is called the citadel. Inside the citadel was the Imperial City, with a perimeter of almost 2.5 kilometers. Inside the Imperial City was the imperial enclosure called the Purple Forbidden City in Vietnamese, a term similar to the Forbidden City in Beijing; the enclosure was reserved for the Nguyễn imperial family. We will have chance to see the temples, pavilions, moats, walls, gates, shops, museums and galleries, featuring art and costumes from various periods of Vietnamese history; like the Ngo Mon ~ the main southern entrance to the city built in 1813 by emperor Minh Mang, Thai Hoa Palace ~ The emperor’s coronation hall, also Truong Sanh Residence ~ translated as the Palace Of Longevity. However, the citadel was badly knocked about during fighting between the French and the Viet Minh in 1947, and again in 1968 during the Tet Offensive, when it was shelled by the Viet Cong and then bombed by the Americans. As a result, some areas are now only empty fields, bits of walls, and an explanatory plaque. Other buildings are intact, though, and a few are in sparkling condition.
