Uncle Ho's statue is carved of monolithic stone, is 1.5 meters high, weighing nearly 3 tons. The monument's courtyard is paved and clad with garito stone, with a total area of 25 square meters. On the front side, there is a plaque inscribed with Uncle Ho's verse instructing cadres and soldiers at the 1st Congress of Emulation Soldiers of the People's Armed Police force on March 2, 1962, held in the capital Hanoi.
