Hue Area: Tomb of Khai Dinh

Khai Dinh (1885-1925)was the first Vietnamese Emperor to be a " puppet " of the French. His tomb is a massive stone edifice. El called him the " King of Bling " because the altar ( not shown ) has lots of flashy gold.

Marble soldiers. They're short, because they could not be as tall as the Emperor, who was not that big himself.

We stopped at a conical-hat making place before we visited Khai Dinh's tomb. El tried this one on.
