  • LUY LAU CERAMICLuy Lau is an old land, the one used to be a province under the Chinese Domination of Vietnam in the 2nd centure A.D. – the major economic, political, cultural and Buddhism center of ancient Vietnam. The land is located on the bank of Duong river of Sieu Loai province, later the Thuan Thien province, now belongs to Thuan Thanh district, Bac Ninh province. Here lie the ancient Luy Lau ramparts with the relics of the once splendid pagodas, residences and monuments.
