A few decades ago, Lo Duc street was rather solitary street of the city, though now it’s much more busy and crowded than before, but still remains the fresh and cool atmosphere brought about by rows of high old trees with crossed luxuriant foliages. At the end of the street, there is an ancient “cây đa” whose branches and leaves has covered a wide area of the street for years. The street lies on a length of 3.5 km, from end of Phan Chu Trinh street to Tran Khat Chan street. At the crossroad where Lo Duc street meets Luong yen street there was a gate called Thien Lang (1831) then changed to lang Yen (1866) but now, it’s not found any traces. On the street locates a vestige attached to the history of the street, To Ong pagoda. At the end of XVIII century, some copper caster from Kinh Bac (now is Bac Ninh province) came here to establish their business. After a time they moved to other places, to memorize an once famous work village, the new road running throughout the village was named Lo Duc. Trace of this copper casting guild to be found is To Ong pagoda lying inside the gate number 79 which gives respectful cult to the ancestor of the copper casting work. Get there by bus 04, 18, 23, 30, 36, 42, 44.
