Solar clock

This clock was built with brick by Mr. Luu Van Lang in early 20th century. It stands opposite to the east with Roman numeral showing time that adhered to Chinese brick and its operation relies on sunlight. In the morning, when the sun rises, its shape is on number 7. The sun goes up gradually at certain height that is equivalent to time showing numeral. At midday, its shade coincides with number 12. When going down progressively, its shape keeps coinciding time order on the clock. 

This special clock is existing. Though various modern others have been invented, the local people conserve it as memory and art work of human life value to the native residents. 

With reputed relics and landscapes as well as abundant products endowed by the nature, Bac Lieu land – the Southernmost area of our nation – is always willing to welcome visitors far and near.
