The whole village has 117 homes, up to 37 houses on 100 year old beam, and their 12 churches, temples intact. There are 12 homes beam are extremely rare, have a lifespan of 150-200 years, time shiny black wooden columns, trusses, regular, rectangular, horizontal board, the department, door carving intricate puzzle... not lost less the wooden structures in the palace dynasty.

Phuoc Tich is also the only country in Central Confucius Temple built over a hundred years ago to honor the studious, encouraging children in the village working diligently under the pen now. That is why almost Phuoc Tich from past to present, virtually none of illiteracy, a rare thing for an ancient village of Phuoc Tich like sucking pig.

Today, the pottery village of only a legacy of the past, no longer economic life past its heyday, but the foundation of the village was studious wings flies away. This explains why, in the village now mostly elderly, young children but who also thorough history of the village as the first lesson in life. It is this has surprised researchers and tourists witnessed behaviors very culture of the people of Phuoc Tich on his father’s legacy.
