The Kien Trung Palace served as the working and living place of Khai Dinh and Bao Dai, the last kings of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945).

The palace’s construction started in 1921 and finished two years later under the reign of King Khai Dinh.

It was built in a mixture of French, Italian Renaissance and old Vietnamese architectural styles by King Khai Dinh. Earlier at the site, there was a pavilion built by King Minh Mang and later repaired by King Tu Duc and King Duy Tan.

It is among five main palaces of the former royal citadel, along with Thai Hoa, Can Chanh, Can Thanh and Khon Thai Palaces. In 1947, the palace was destroyed during the war.
