Khai Tuong Lau is the main hall of An Dinh Palace, built under the reign of Emperor Khai Dinh in the early 20th century according to European classical architecture. Its elegance and splendor are created by a system of reliefs, murals and decorative wall panels in European-style flower and leaf patterns combined with traditional oriental decorative motifs, such as the eight weapons, phoenix bird, swastika, the longevity character... This architectural work is one of 17 clusters of relics belonging to the cultural heritage system in Hue recognized by UNESCO.

This is also the place to organize cultural events Hue Festival and annual cultural and art exchanges of the province.
