Preserving Duong Lam ancient village

The Hanoi municipal People’s Committee has unveiled a plan to preserve and uphold the traditional values of Duong Lam ancient village in Son Tay town.

Under the plan, Duong Lam village – a natural heritage site – will be preserved in a bid to maintain its original architecture and intangible values.

It is part of a wider  modern urban development scheme, focusing on infrastructure, tourism, local economic development, and environmental protection.

Target areas include Mong Phu, Dong Sang, Cam Thịnh, Doai Giap and Cam Lam hamlets, and part of a rice field in Duong Lam commune, covering more than 164ha in total.

Priority will also be given to protecting local residents’  ancient houses and lifestyles.

Hanoi will develop prioritized projects calling for the participation of all economic sectors to preserve the village in the event of urbanization.

The Chairman of the Son Tay Town People’s Committee, Dang Vu Nhat Thang, emphasized that Duong Lam ancient village is the first of its kind to be recognised as a national heritage site and have a zoning plan to preserve and uphold local traditions..

The scheme was officially approved on March 7 after seven years conducting research and discussions.
