Visiting the Homeland - Tomb of Emperor Tự Đức - Lăng Tự Đức - Huế, Vietnam


Tomb of Tự Đức aka Lăng Tự Đức is located in Huế, Vietnam.


INTERESTING FACTS:

✔️Emperor Tu Duc enjoyed the longest reign of any monarch of the Nguyen dynasty, ruling from 1848-83.


✔️It took three years to build from 1864–1867.


✔️Although he had over a hundred wives and concubines, he was unable to father a son (possibly he became sterile after contracting smallpox).


✔️From 1866-1883, Emperor Tự Đức lived in the tomb's palace until his death.


✔️Despite the grandeur of the site and the amount of time Tu Duc spent here, he was buried in a different, secret location somewhere in Hue. To keep the secret safe the 200 laborers who buried the king were all beheaded after they returned from the secret route. To this day, the real tomb of Tu Duc remains hidden.
