Bau Truc in the central province of Ninh Thuan is the oldest pottery village in Southeast Asia, which also has a museum featuring traditional pottery of the Cham ethnic minority people.
Bau Truc is located some 10 kilometres south of Phan Rang town. The small village is home to more than 400 families, of which 85 per cent are in the traditional pottery business. The profession is said to have been handed down originally from Po Klong Chanh, an ancestor and founder of the village.
Every year, local people hold worship ceremonies and a festival to commemorate Chanh.
