Be aware that you should dress properly to visit that monument. The statues were very nice and the view from the top is magnificent.

That said, at the very top is the most impressive tomb. There are 4 different levels. At the second level, in the center is a stele pavilion that records Emperor Dong Khanh's biography written by his son. The obelisk on either side, are similar to...More
