HO CHI MINH PEOPLE COMMITTEE

HO CHI MINH PEOPLE COMMITTEE

Ho Chi Minh City Hall or Saigon City Hall or Hôtel de Ville de Saïgon (Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee ) was built in 1902-1908 in a French colonial style for the then city of Saigon. It was renamed after 1975 as Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee.

Although this elegant colonial building is not open to the public, Saigon City Hall is popular for its great photo opportunities. Tourists can take photographs outside and many people choose to do this at night for more beautiful.

The first name of this building is Hôtel de Ville. After the Vietnam War, it became the workplace of Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee. Although it has undergone many name changes, the building remains the original use, the meeting, and the workplace of the city government. People’s Committee Building in Ho Chi Minh City is a place witnessing the great historical events of Vietnam.

The decoration of the City People's Committee Building, in addition to the textures, also has 3 special embossed statues. It is a statue of a woman and two children who are controlling the swarm of animals (in the middle) and the statue of two other women in the sword-holding position who are ready to fight (on the left and right)
