Overview

This place was built between 1805 and 1812 under King Gia Long and is over 2 centuries old. It resembles an old stone fortress and has steps leading to the top where one can get a good view of the city. There are old cannon sitting at the base of the place at grand level.

Vietnam Military History Museum was for the place who were interested in Military related treasures. Even the military used helicopters and tanks were displayed. Very interesting.

Tower built in 1812. Old architecture. Lots of weapons and military hardware on display, that were used in the Vietnam War, from 1958 thru 1973. No charge for visiting the exterior displays.

You can see the clock tower from quite a ways off. It is part of the Hanoi Citadel and has been there for about 200 years.
