The Dong Hoi citadel gates stand tall as a testament to the destruction brought upon Vietnam by war.
Once a symbol of absolute grandeur and might, the Dong Hoi Citadel Gates are but a mere shadow of its former self, the only remnants of the Dong Hoi Citadel. One of the only things left behind after a bombing destroyed most of Dong Hoi, the citadel gates are highly recommended for history buffs. The Citadel is a complex of intricate fences and towers that form a fortress and offer complete security to the kings inside. It was built by the Nguyen Dynasty in the 1600s and was remodelled again in the 1800s. The spectacular architecture is an absolute wonder and a definite no-miss.
