In the middle of the surrounding wall (Buu Thanh) is Huynh Oc house, roofed with yellow tiles. The interior decoration is simple: one bed and one table made of Thanh stone used to place altar and offerings during ceremonies. On each side, the graves of Emperor Duc Duc and Queen Tu Minh lie symmetrically. The screen in front of the Emperor tomb bears two words "Song Hy" or "double happiness".

Long An Temple is in the centre of the area, built after the model of the existing palaces in Hue. Inside are three altars dedicated to the three emperors: Duc Duc (in the middle, with his wife), Thanh Thai (on the left) and Duy Tan (on the right).

These two patriotic emperors (Thanh Thai and Duy Tan) rest in the back of Long An. There are also tombs of the Emperor's relatives.
