Activities honoring President Ho Chi Minh and the heroic martyrs will resume on August 16.
Located in Hanoi’s down town, the President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the resting place of President Ho Chi Minh aka Uncle Ho.
The monument was built in 1973 with the help of the former Soviet Union. It looks over Ba Dinh Square, where Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence on September 2, 1945, announcing the birth the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
The remains of President Ho Chi Minh rest in the central hall of the mausoleum where thousands of citizens and foreign guests visit every day.
Together with the sacred mausoleum, some nearby religious and historical relics such as Ba Dinh Square, President Ho Chi Minh’s stilt house and fish pond, a museum in his honor and the One-Pillar Pagoda, among others, make up a must-see cluster of the tourist destinations in the capital city.
