Lonely Planet review

On top of the Ngo Mon Gate is Ngu Phung, where the emperor appeared on important occasions, most notably for the promulgation of the lunar calendar. On 30 August 1945, the Nguyen dynasty ended here when Emperor Bao Dai abdicated to a delegation sent by Ho Chi Minh's Provisional Revolutionary Government.
