“The best of the tomb”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The best scenery regarding its surrounding. Semi black pillar make the tomb looks great. The downside is only its closenest with the main road. Which make us difficult to take great picture. The line of the soldiers after the main gate is one of our favorite

“Amazing mosaics”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

While I didn't like the atmosphere of this place as much as some other tombs, the mosaics really are incredible. It's worth spending time looking at the detail. The elevated setting is also quite nice. NB There are a lot of steps involved.

“Fabulous but many stairs beware”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Well worth the trip a few KMs from Hue. Very different style of Tomb. Cross the river and see Ming Mah's tomb too.

“Another tomb of a long forgotten monarch!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is a rather impressive site and you do need a guide and a bit of historical knowledge.
Khai Din was considered to be a puppet King with his strings pulled by the French. His tomb took 11 years to build but he never got buried there!
He had to increase taxes by 30% to fund his ambitious tomb and all for nothing!
It is worth a visit.
