The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, located in Ba Dinh Square, is the final resting place of the most popular leader of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, known to his people as Uncle Ho. It is also where Uncle Ho read the Declaration of Independence on September 2nd, 1945. It was opened to the public in 1975. Visitors are allowed a short time to look at the casket as the line has to keep moving forward.
The grey granite building of Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is strictly guarded. The leader's body is preserved in a glass case in the mausoleum. Modelled on Lenin's mausoleum in Russia, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is home to perfectly preserved remains of 'Uncle Ho' in a glass case, despite his will which clearly stated that he wanted to be cremated. It's a must-visit for everyone planning a trip to Hanoi because it gives you a sense of the unique history of Vietnam and brings you up close to their greatest hero.
