Tiger Arena

Ho Quyen, or the Tiger’s arena, is the Asian version of a Roman coliseum. It was exclusively used for entertaining the Emperor’s and nobility. An unusual find in Southeast Asia, this temple was last used in 1909 but the structure remains well-preserved. Here, distinguished spectators would watch elephants, tigers and leopards battle one another in the ring.
