Verdant An Hien garden house 

On the left bank of the Huong River, although going through the harsh weather, with an age of over 100 years, An Hien garden house still keeps the ancient values.

The house is designed in the standard structure of Hue’s garden house architecture, being harmony with nature. In front of the house is the poetic Huong river, passing through the gate is a long walkway laying between two rows of green trees, going further inside are the screen, the yard, the parterre, bonsai, and freshwater lake, following by a majestic ancient Rường house laying modestly in the middle of the spacious and airy garden.

Going through many generations of owners, from the first one who was the 18th princess of Duc Duc Emperor, this estate, at that time, was the princess’s Residence and named An Hien Residence hitherto. Although being under the ownership of a business nowadays, An Hien garden house still keeps the original value and is well-known as the ideal destination to stop, visit and check-in when coming to Hue.

Thua Thien Hue Weekly would like to introduce a series of photos about the visit and experience to An Hien garden house and try Hue cakes shot by photographer Dang Vy!
