Architecture of Vietnam in Nguyen Dynasty

     The development of the Bac Ha region at the beginning of the 19th century slowed down after the capital was moved to Hue by the Nguyen Dynasty. At the same time, development in Thang Long increased as citadels, cultural structures, temples, and new residential areas were built.


     The centre of this significant development was in Hue where imposing citadels, palaces, and tombs were built. The Vietnamese culture in Hue was influenced by the garden type houses, which were quite different from the tubular type of houses found in Ha Noi.


     Hue's architecture was considered to be a collection of traditional influences, such as flat surfaces, citadels and urban centres, interior decorations, and scenery structures.
