Ba Dinh is a district of Hanoi, established in June 1981, when the Ba Dinh neighborhood was transformed into Ba Dinh district. It comprises 15 wards: Buoi, Cau Giay, Cong Vi, Dien Bien, Doi Can, Giang Vo, Kim Ma, Ngoc Ha, Nguyen Trung Truc, Phuc Xa, Quan Thanh, Thanh Cong, Thuy Khue, Truc Bach, Yen Phu. The entire area of the Thang Long Imperial Citadel is located within this district.
The name Ba Dinh originates from the Ba Dinh combat zone of the 1886-1887 uprising, responding to the late 19th-century Can Vuong movement led by patriotic revolutionaries Pham Banh, Dinh Cong Trang, and the people of Nga Son district, Thanh Hoa.
In 1945, the name Ba Dinh was given to the flower garden behind the botanical garden, where President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam on September 2, 1945.
In 1959, the name Ba Dinh was assigned to one of the eight inner-city neighborhoods of Hanoi. In 1981, the Ba Dinh neighborhood was officially renamed Ba Dinh district.
Ba Dinh is bordered to the north by Tay Ho district, to the south by Dong Da district, to the east by Long Bien district across the Red River, and to the southeast by Hoan Kiem district. To the west, it is adjacent to Cau Giay district.
Ba Dinh district has 14 wards: Cong Vi, Dien Bien, Doi Can, Giang Vo, Kim Ma, Lieu Giai, Ngoc Ha, Ngoc Khanh, Nguyen Trung Truc, Phuc Xa, Quan Thanh, Thanh Cong, Truc Bach, Vinh Phuc.
