Imagine the royal ceremonies that took place in the imperial city by visiting The Noon Gate (Cua Ngo Mon). The gate dates back to 1833, and reflects Nguyen architectural style. The gate suffered damages during the wars and underwent restauration. Visit its two levels, where the upper resembles a palace, and enjoy the view the emperors once had. The beautiful yellow glazed tiles on the roof will amaze you with their bold color, and you will see many animal figures and flowers adorning the facade as a protection from the evil.
