Notes on the Geography of Vietnam: Hue: the Citadel: Photo 2

world pictures Vietnam: Hue: the Citadel

The citadel stands on the Perfume River, and at the midpoint of the side facing the river there is a bastion with a flagpole tower. There's nothing "oriental" about the design: it's straight from the Vauban pattern book, except that the flagpole marks the south end of an axis that runs, Beijing style, through the palace grounds. Along that axis everything is symmetrically balanced.
