Three of the Nine Dynastic Urns
Vietnam, Huế, March 2010

Huế is perhaps best known for its historic monuments in the Citadel, which have earned it a place in the UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Inside the Citadel was a forbidden city where only the concubines, emperors, and those close enough to them were granted access, the punishment for trespassing being death. Today, little of the forbidden city remains. In this picture you see three of the Nine Dynastic Urns. They were cast between 1835 and 1837. Each of the urns represents a different Nguyen king. The urns are decorated with typical Vietnamese motifs (the sun, the moon, mountains, rivers and landscapes): http://www.virtourist.com/asia/vietnam/hue/09.htm
