President Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum


Location: In Ba Dinh Square, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi, Vietnam.
Characteristic: The construction of the Mausoleum started in September 1973, on the foundations of the old rostrum in Ba Dinh Square where president Ho Chi Minh used to chair national meetings. Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum was completed nearly two years later on August 29, 1975.

Engraved on the front of the Mausoleum is Chu Tich Ho Chi Minh, meaning "President Ho Chi Minh". Uncle Ho's dead body dressed in faded khaki clothes and plain rubber shoes was put in a glass coffin.
The Mausoleum is the everlasting rest house of the greatest leader of Vietnam.
