Visitors to King's Palace of Hue, better known as the Royal Palace, can view the thrones of the emperors belonging to the Nguyen Dynasty
Most of the historical buildings of Hue bear a legacy of the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945). Inside the city, one would find the Royal Palace, Royal Citadel, Royal Tombs and Flag Tower. Hue's Forbidden Purple City, once reserved for the royal family, is also a place not to be missed. However, it was badly damaged during the Vietnam War.
