In the Halls of the Mandarins you will find these large fine urns each with its own unique carvings and I suppose there names, I don't read Mandarin, but very beautifully decorated.

To dedicate urns to the Emperors seemed unusual to me but nevertheless they are impressive and if in the Imperial City a must see.

I assume these are the ones in the citadel. They are certainly some big urns. There was some confusion though when I asked the nearby staff what's a dynastic urn? and he replied about 1m dong a week. Funny chap. We left.

Located within Hue Citadel. The 9 Dynastic Urns, made entirely in bronze, with a minimum height of 2.3 meters and weighing 2 tons each, represent the 9 Emperors in Vietnam.

These nine urns are dedicated to the first nine n emperors of the Nguyen dynasty. Understand they are of different dimension and weight. Design-wise, these urns are similar in design to those found in Chinese dynasties in China.

Interesting bronze objects, each different and nine because of historic numerology. They are replica pieces.

Another wonderful Temple. You have to like Temples to visit Vietnam. Your guide will tell you the story of the 9 Urns. Peaceful.
