If Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, Ba Dinh Square is the warm heart of Hanoi capital.It did witness a lot of the nation’s important historical events. At this square, on 2nd September 1945, President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence to a crowd of half million Vietnamese people to give a birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (now the Socialist Republic  of Vietnam).That was a historical & happy moment for Vietnamese to cheer up the nation’s independence & unity ending the French’s colonial domination of nearly 100 years and the Japanese cruel fascism of almost 5 years. Also at this square,the funeral of President Ho Chi Minh was organized in 24 years later, in 1969.

Then this square was chosen by in-power Vietnamese government as a site to construct Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum as a final resting place of President Ho Chi Minh so that our great father can be forever remembered.
