Stele Building, Tomb of Tu Duc
The Complex of Hue Monuments is located within the Thua Thien-Hue Province in the geographical center of Vietnam. Established as the capital of unified Vietnam in 1802, Hue was not only the political but also the cultural and religious center under the Nguyen dynasty until 1945. The Complex of Hue Monuments site has suffered from the effects of wars, as well as modern development and expanding human settlements. The Tu Duc Tomb is the final resting place of Emperor Tu Duc who reigned from 1848 until his death in 1883.
Weighing 20 tons, the largest in Viet Nam, Tu Duc’s stone stele is housed in a missive brick house near his tomb. On the stele, Tu Duc wrote a 5,000 character epitaph critical of mistakes he made throughout his reign.
