History of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was completed in 1975, 6 years after the death of Ho Chi Minh. The tomb is modelled on Lenin’s tomb in Moscow and body of Ho Chi Minh, which is displayed in a glass cabinet inside the tomb, is sent to Russia every year for the same preservation work that keeps Lenin’s body in a condition where it can still be displayed.

Importance of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Even if you you can’t get inside the tomb it is worth visiting Ba Dinh Square to see the building from the outside as it’s a grand and unusual structure which is 41.2 metres wide and 21.6 metres tall. The mausoleum is constructed out of grey granite with thick columns supporting the roof on all sides. The building has more than a passing resemblance to the Parthenon in Athens and looks like a tomb fit for a king or emperor. Ho Chi Minh himself, however, left instructions for his body to be cremated and his ashes scattered across Vietnam in keeping with his beliefs about foregoing personal wealth.
