Photographer's Note

Hue citadel is old, it was built under Nguyen dynasty in 1805. Hue citadel is very famous. However, it was the third citadel which was built by Gia Long king. The first citadel was built in 1790 in Sai Gon, now is Ho chi minh city. The second citadel is the citadel in this picture, it's DIen Khanh, near Nha Trang. The Dien Khanh citadel was built in 1793 by Gia Long king after he had defeated Tay Son military. Its gates are rather like Gia Dinh citadel gates in Sai Gon which was fallen in 1859. Dien Khanh wall is not very strong. It was built by sand and soil. Everything in the citadel was broken and built again. A ruin of old citadel. However, its gates have been still untouched shape after 222 years ago. The citadel was in vauban architecture and rather like as Gia Dinh in Sai Gon. If you wanted to know shape of Gia Dinh citadel, you should visit this citadel.,109.0945075,843m/data=!3m1!1e3
