Walking around The Citadel Walls in Hue
This is a very nice walking route to take while visiting Hue. Did the first half the first day before I entered The Citadel and on the second day I returned and walked the whole route.
It is a long walk, especially when its as hot as it was the past two days! But when visiting Hue I will recommend that you do this walk!!
These nine holy cannons are housed in two buildings beside the The Nhan and Quang Duc Miradors in the Citadel of Hue. Each cannon is 5.10m long and weights more than 10 tons. Their barrels are elaborately inscribed with the titles, position order, weight, instructions, and writings on fights against the Tay Son Dynasty.
The work was completed at the end of January 1804. The cannons were named after the four seasons and the five elements: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. They are the “Holy Invincible Generals”.
