Ceiling Art at Khai Dinh Tomb in Hue, Vietnam

Today’s travel photo is of some amazing ceiling art inside the tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh in Hue, Vietnam. Of the three tombs that I visited near Hue, the tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh was by far the most impressive and elaborate. The architecture is magnificent, but it was the details that really impressed me. The entire tomb is covered in art, some painted and some carved. It was one of those places that I just wandered around with my mouth open a lot. It is a must see if you travel to Hue.

  • Pretty wild ceiling art! Almost modern and abstract… (though it’s probably quite old?)

      Yes it is old, but not as old as you might think (1900’s). There are plenty of European influences as well.
