After the day when I took my last 2 main photos we did get to go inside Hue's Đại Nội Citadel. We couldn't go everywhere because there was plenty of water lying about.
One of the first things that we came across was this big old and a bit battered drum. The drum was often used to herald closing-time of the Imperial City. At this signal, sentries would fire the cannons of the Flag Tower and close, or open, the gates of the citadel. On the front of the drum you can just make out a Yin and yang symbol.
