I visited this Tomb on a City Tour.

Khai Dinh was born in 1885, and reigned as Emperor from 1916 to 1925.

The Tomb was built over a period of 11 years, from 1920 to 1931. It is located high on a hill in the Chau mountain range. t

This Tomb is different to the others, it looks a bit like a Palace. Inside, there is a lot of beautiful porcelain decoration on the walls, columns and ceiling as well as the statue of Khai Dinh, his grave and his alter.

A beautiful Tomb, and from the top there are nice views. This Tomb also has statues in one of the courtyards.

BE FIT, you need to climb about 150 steps to the top.
Well worth visiting.
