Description: Hué, instituted as the capital of unified Viet Nam in 1802, was both the political and the cultural and religious centre under the Nguyen dynasty until 1945. This unique feudal capital holds a setting of great natural beauty, what with the Perfume River winding its way through the Capital City, the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Inner City. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.

  Huế (help•info) (化 in chữ Nôm) is the capital city of Thừa Thiên - Huế province, Vietnam. Between 1802 and 1945, it was the imperial capital of the Nguyễn Dynasty. As such, it is well known for its monuments and architecture. Its population stands at about 340,000 people. On the north side of the river is the Citadel, the centre of the historic city. Most of Huế's important monuments, temples, and pagodas are found in this area. The south side of the river is newer, and contains most of the city's business and residential areas. Huế's most outstanding attractions are the royal citadel, an imperial city and the emperor's tombs. Huế's complex of monuments is listed among the UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Huế is a very tranquil and marvellous city in the central part of Vietnam. There are many famous people who were born in Huế or had spent some time in this beautiful city. The city is one of the most popular places for tourists in Vietnam. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
