Forbidden Purple City Huế

Forbidden Purple City Huế
By the end of the imperial rule in Vietnam in the mid 20th century, when the last Emperor of Vietnam stepped down, many dozens of pavilions and hundreds of rooms had been added to the Purple Forbidden City. Though improper maintenance of the Forbidden City made it susceptible to frequent termite and typhoon damage it nevertheless remained an imposing spectacle.
Today the city is one of the UNESCO sites and the remaining buildings and those that escaped complete destruction have been lovingly restored
