Tomb Side
Emperor Khai Dinh (1885-1925)
ruled Vietnam for 9 years. His
tomb took 11 years to complete.
Construction began in 1920 and
was completed in 1931.


Under Khai Dinh, Western culture
and influence began to seep into
Vietnam. The king himself visited
France in 1922. As a result, his
tomb has many elements of
Western architecture.
