Duong Lam Ancient Village

Đường Lâm village has a history dating back about 1,200 years with many houses in Đông Sàng, Mông Phụ and Cam Có Hamlets built in the 17th century. Visitors to the village often visit the houses in Mông Phụ, which are said to be the most beautiful and more specifically, their owners will spend time showing people around their beloved houses. Nguyễn Thị Thu Hoài is a tour guide for the village’s Management Board 'The architecture of all the houses there is the same, with rows of columns and spans. In the past, only wealthy people or landlords could build such big houses. The big wooden house often has 5 or 7 spans with 2 wings. The houses of civilian and military mandarins are often different to each other. In a civilian mandarin’s house, there are many horizontal lacquered boards and parallel sentences while in a military mandarin’s house, either dragon-shaped patterns or contemporary designs dominate'.
