The Ho Chi Minh City Council building, located on Le Thanh Ton Street at the end of Nguyen Hue Boulevard, is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
Construction of the building began in 1898 and ended in 1908. According to sources, the building was designed by the famous French architect Garde, who also took part in the work on the interior of the rectangular side wings and the main hall of the building. The famous bell tower rises on the roof of the building, which is located on a pedestal made in the form of a pyramid. The bell towers were made in the style of the Renaissance.
Today, the city council building is a government building, which is accessible only to civil servants and staff. The council building was built in the colonial style, which is very reminiscent of the French provincial cities. The building was painted in yellow and milky white.
Until 1954, the building was called the City Council, in 1954-1975 it was called the Saigon City Council. Since 1975, the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City has been located here.
