Dinh Bang Communal House, located in Dinh bang village, Tu Son town, 20km from Ha Noi, is very famous in the North of the country. Its construction started in 1700 and ended in 1736.

The house is a place of worship for three tutelary spirits: Cao son Dai Vuong, God of land, Thuy Ba Dai Vuong, God of water, and Bach Le Dai Vuong, God of harvest. The main part of the communal house is rectangular, 20m long and 14m wide, and it is divided into seven rooms.

It is very imposing due to its large roof and its 60 or so ironwood pillars, which range in diameter from 55 to 65cm. The design of the components is very complex and the strcture is very sturdy. There is a panel inscribed with Chinese characters that is read in Vietnamese as Bat Ma Quan Phi, which means Eight Running Horses.

To get to Dinh Bang village from Hanoi, cross the Red River on the Chuong Duong Bridge and then take Natioanl Highway 1A for nearly 20km. Dinh Bang, which is rich in sites of historical interest, is one of the 20 traditional handicraft villages of Bac Ninh. In Dinh Bang, people are experts in lacquerware.

Moreover, almost everyone in the village sing Quan Ho. People of all ages and of both genders express their feelings through lyrics that bear a deep national character.
