The tomb of emperor Tu Duc was built between 1864-67 in a pine forest area. It is surrounded by a wall and contains a pond (the Luu Khiem lake). This tomb is perhaps the least impressive of the imperial tombs in Hue.
The tomb of Khai Dinh is one of the more recent imperial tombs having been built between 1920 and 1932. It lies in a very scenic position in the Chau mountain, 10km south of Hue. It was built entirely in concrete and is one of the more elaborate of all imperial tombs with richly decorated interiors.
