Photos: Tombs & Forbidden cities - Hue, Vietnam

Vietnam like the rest of Asia is not without its historical tombs and ancient sites of worship and cultural interest - the only difference is that much was destroyed by American or French wars and paragodas as well as temples have undergone much refurbishment throughout the centuries. However one thing is sure, they can be true to themselves, not replacing these amazing pieces of architecture with modern versions but replicating them as best they can. The audacious role that former kings played on the country before giving in to foreign leadership is very much apparent.
