People wait to enter the grounds of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to view the embalmed body of the former leader. According to Wikipedia:
"In his will, Ho Chi Minh stated his wish to be cremated and to have his ashes scattered in the hills of north, central, and southern Việt Nam. He said that he preferred cremation because it would be "more hygienic than burial and would also save land for agricultural purposes". By building this mausoleum, the succeeding Communist government violated Ho's wishes. Ho Chi Minh's body is preserved in the cooled, central hall of the mausoleum. There is a military honor guard. The body lies in a glass case with dim lights."
