Ho Chi Minh City Hall, Ho Chi Minh City Overview

Ho Chi Minh City Hall or People's Committee Building in District 1 is both an iconic landmark as well as an administrative institution. The structure was designed by French architect Gardes, and features embossed statues of women and children and bas-reliefs on the outside. During evenings, the building lights up with LED lights and provides a great photo-op. However, the hall isn't open to the public as it is used for government purposes.

People's Committee Building or the Ho Chi Minh City Hall, built in 1898, was earlier a French hotel named Hotel de Ville. It was constructed by Gardes and is the oldest French-inspired building in Ho Chi Minh City. Currently, it serves as the Ho Chi Minh City Hall. Since the building is used by the government as a workplace, people are not allowed to go inside. But the edifice of the building is worth witnessing because of its beautiful architecture.

The Ho Chi Minh City Hall is divided into three buildings with three statues adorned on the walls. One statue represents two women with swords ready for a combat, while the other represents women and children controlling ferocious animals. A statue of Ho Chi Minh named 'Uncle Ho and children' stand in front of the building, dedicated to the great leader as a mark of love and respect. The complex also houses lush green gardens replete with colourful flowers.
