In the courtyard of The To Mieu stood these imposing Urns, 1 for every emperor. They'd to stop at 9 as the war broke away and the remaining couldn't be finished. The biggest in the facility would be in memory of Minh Ming

They are found inside the Imperial City. They are actually quite impressive for their carvings and size. It is also (sadly) interesting to see the damages provoked by the war.

Interesting to see while in the Citadel. Watch the crowds though, lots of people seem to congregate in this area.
