Ho Chi Minh,

HISTORICAL MONUMENT

The Ho Chi Minh City Hall has been one of the metropolis’ most recognizable landmarks since the period of French rule. Nguyen Ngoc Thien, the minister of culture, sports and tourism, approved a decision to recognize the Saigon City Hall building as a national architectural monument. The century-old French-built structure was classified under the cultural architecture category. The building was constructed by the French administration from 1898 until 1909, then called Hôtel de Ville. Before 1975, it housed the working quarters of the then-government and has since become the main office for the HCMC People’s Committee.
