These images are all from Khai Dinh Royal Tomb in Hue, Vietnam. Built around 1920, the interior rooms are full of intricate detailing.
The tomb itself was decoration overload, the entire surface covered with intricate tile mosaics.

Wow, thank you for sharing. When were these photos taken??
Khai Dinh Tomb in Hue, Vietnam
I know. My question was when did you visit this place? Last time I visited Huê was in 2008.
We were there in December 2013…
Definitely intricate and the detail is so amazing.
They never said how many people were involved in the construction of this tomb. The tile mosaics had to be seen to be believed.
Beautiful detail. A bit of sensory overload though. Was your head spinning when you left. 🙂
I started out taking photos of the details but soon realized that it would take months to get them all. Once I realized that, I had to just relax and try for some overall shots…
