The 9 Dynastic Urns are one of the highlights of visiting the Imperial Citadel... these large, bronze works of art are symmetrically arrayed at the opposite side of the courtyard separating the temple of the 7 Nguyen Emperors. A close examination reveals the interesting adornments on the outside of the urns... Don't miss this wonderful spot in the ancient Imperial complex -- enjoy :))
