A seminar on protecting the President Ho Chi Minh relic site at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi was held in Hanoi on Thursday.

Presentations at the seminar highlighted achievements after 50 years of preserving and promoting the values of the relic site and proposed measures to increase the quality of education and community activities held there. In his address, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam said: Over the past 50 years, the relic site has become a popular destination. President Ho Chi Minh represents the best of us, and is the quintessence of wisdom, dignity, and bravery. Generations of staff working at the relic site have contributed to collecting and spreading President Ho Chi Minh's moral philosophy.

To mark the occasion, an exhibition on preserving and promoting the values of the President Ho Chi Minh relic site at the Presidential Palace was held.

President Ho Chi Minh relic site in the Presidential Palace in Hanoi has become a popular attraction with tourists who come to visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

After 1954, when Hanoi was liberated, Uncle Ho lived and worked in this area. The Presidential Palace of Vietnam is a large villa built by French colonialists in the early 20th century. Because of his love of nature, Uncle Ho didn't live in the Presidential Palace, but in a small house next to it. Uncle Ho used the Presidential Palace for diplomatic activities only.

Uncle Ho's stilt house is next to a large pond surrounded by lush orchards. In the garden, there are many rare species of fruit trees from all over the country. He grew trees and raised fish like an ordinary laborer. After he died, the whole area including the stilt house became a relic site associated with the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
