The royal mausoleum guardians 

In the work of managing, preserving, and promoting the values of the Complex of Hue Monuments, the force of managers and guardians (working for the Hue Monuments Conservation Center) is considered “the royal mausoleum guardians” in the modern age.

With 29 relics located from Huong Tra district, Hue City to Huong Thuy District, nearly 200 cadres and officers have to divide into many groups to be on duty to ensure safety for works, artifacts, and support tourists.

Together with Thua Thien Hue Weekly, let’s accompany those “royal mausoleum guardians” through the series of photos taken by the photographer Bao Minh to get to know more about their daily work - the silent work contributing to the preservation of Hue cultural heritage in particular and Vietnam cultural heritage in general.
