NDO – An exhibition, themed “Hanoi’s Old Quarter – traces of ancient trade villages”, officially opened at Kim Ngan Temple in Hanoi on December 18.

On display are hundreds of photos and artefacts showcasing the formation and development of trade streets of Hanoi (Thang Long in the past).

With its geographical location and favorable natural conditions, Thang Long - Hanoi has become an attractive place to attract talented and skillful craftsmen from many trade villages around the country.

Craftsmen for each handicraft gathered in a certain area and created trade streets. They also built temples to worship the ancestors who found their professions.

There are now 14 temples worshipping the ancestors of the professions in Hanoi Old’s Quarter.

The exhibition will last until January 15, 2021.
