Arriving at Tho Ha ancient village, a picture of an intact village opens before our eyes: from the ancient, mossy village gate, from the ancient banyan tree by the poetic wharf, the shadows of people and vehicles leaning on the ground, to a peaceful space. The green bamboo ramps by the red brick roads, the walls are covered with pieces of pottery that have been tinged with time.
The main road of the village runs along the banks of the Cau River, turning into deep and narrow alleys, which trace of the once-reputed pottery profession are preserved, with ancient walls built entirely of pieces of pottery. These are inherently defective products, used as construction materials by Tho Ha people. In particular, these walls are warm in winter, cool in summer, and very durable over time, becoming a very unique feature of Tho Ha ancient village.
In the village, there are ancient architectural works built from the 16th to 17th centuries, such as 3 historical and cultural relics recognized by the state as Tho Ha village communal house, Tho Ha pagoda, Van Chi pagoda. Tho Ha village gate is quite superficial, located on the side of a shady ancient banyan tree, considered one of the most beautiful village gates in the lower and middle area of Cau River. In addition, in the village, there are 4 temples in four hamlets, and especially hundred-of-year-old houses with beautiful architecture.
Standing in the middle of an ancient Vietnamese village for hundreds of years, you will feel like going back in time to the ancient northern countryside. Peaceful scenery, green bamboo groves, deep trails create every bit of peace.
