Admire dynastic continuity at The Mieu Temple, an ancestral temple dedicated to ten emperors of the Nguyen dynasty located in the World Heritage Site Imperial City, Hue. Completed in 1823, the temple houses many personal belonging of Nguyen emperors. The yellow-colored roof of the temple had endings in the form of the squash blossoms and it covers altars for each emperor with their photo and gold ingots. The courtyard has nine colossal dynastic urns dedicated to nine emperors, each about 2 m (6.5 ft) in height weighing 1,900 kg to 2,600 kg (4,189 to 5,732 lbs). The central and most ornate urn is that of the dynastic founder and the yard also features statues of dragons captivated in red boxes.

  • The entire Citadel of hue is worth a visit and thus of course also this temple. We believe it is essential to you be sure to catch a knowledgeable, enthusiastic leaders or to have a good travel guide in paper form in. Was the leader of our agency booked - in Central Vietnam a failure overall. In our opinion, you benefit from the visits within the Citadel with in-depth background information only. The building of the Temple in and of itself is really very nice!

  • This temple is dedicated to the emperors of the last dynasty in Vietnam (Nguyen dynasty 1802-1945). Beautifully maintained. Several emperors who were against the French colonials were only inducted to this temple in a later time after the French left Indochina
  • This is a huge walled temple complex. Basically is formed by two buildings, The Hien Lamb Pavillon and the proper Mieu Temple... separate by a courtyard. The Mieu Temple has an shrine for each one of the emperors (with an photography) In the courtyard, Nine Dynastic Urns are dedicated to each one of the Nguyen emperors.
