(What the building is) Historical sites, relics and buildings have remained an important kind of cultural tourism resource as they are always a centre of attraction and attention from the tourists and authorities. Among many historical buildings in Vietnam, Hue Citadel Complex stands out as the most prominent one. Therefore, I would like to share some information about such a stunning complex like this.
(Where it is located) The citadel complex is based in Hue, which was capital of Vietnam for hundreds of years of feudalism. Many buildings are condensed into just one complex, conjuring up such a large and stunning place of residence for the kings, in which the Meridian Gate is the most important building that leads people to the citadel. It was modelled after the Meridian Gate of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. Like the original in Beijing, the Meridian Gate in Huế is composed of a main, central section and two protruding wings, representing que towers, traditional towers marking the entrance of palaces, temples and tombs.
(What the significance of this building is) The complex holds great cultural and historical values as it has witnessed many monarchs of Vietnam as well as the transfer of power between the last monarch and the democratic government. Also, its cultural value is also of great importance as most cultural characteristics of Vietnam are presented in and reflected by the complex such as the Ying-Yang balance, the use of patterns, colours and materials.
(Describe your experience with the building) I have never had the chance to pay a visit to this building before. However, having heard of its significance, I have nurtured the dream of leaving my footprints in this UNESCO heritage site.
