With this dome system, the construction becomes higher and larger which  suitable for a place serving a lot of people.

There are 2 historic maps on the dome of the lobby:”Saigon et ses environs 1892” and “Lignes telegraphiques du Sud Vietnam et du Cambodge 1936”. Nowadays, there are some other constructions around this post office which make this area more crowded and eventful.
