Initial construction started in 1948 when the Viet Minh required a place to hide from French air attacks. By 1965, the complex was estimated to have 200 km of tunnels. It included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters. To protect against outside intruders booby traps were laid throughout the complex.
