The marker, which carries the legend “Loi Te Bridge,” was made during the reign of King Minh Mang of the Nguyen Dynasty in 1840.
Loi Te was the precursor to the 25-meter Kim Long Bridge.
In 1990, when Kim Long was being built, the marker had fallen into the river and local residents made donations to retrieve it.
