Ngọ (午) here means Noon, or "at the middle", not the horse in zodiacs

Ancient Vietnamese love gardens. They built temple, palace complex which made up of small buildings and huge gardens, artificial lakes. For example, most of lakes in Hanoi was a river until 16th century. In that case, one of the largest rivers in the orient was cut into pieces to be parts of emperor's garden.

The forbidden city in Huế is the same. It is only second to the one in Beijing in term of total area but instead of huge palaces and buildings, there are huge artificial lakes, gardens and small buildings.

If you don't mind the worst traffic in the world, constant rip off, annoying beggars then just go.
