Binh Da Temple Festival – Hanoi

April 2 @ 8:00 am - April 5 @ 5:00 pm

The Binh Da temple Festival is held between the third and sixth days of the third lunar month to commemorate the nation’s legendary progenitor, Lac Long Quan.

Legend says the nation’s great father Lac Long Quan passed away in Ba Go (also called Tam Thai Hill). To mark the event, an annual festival is held between the third and sixth days of the third lunar month. Lac Long Quan (literally “Dragon Lord of Lac”) is considered the second Hung king of the Hong Bang Dynasty of ancient Viet Nam (known then as Van Lang and before that as Xich Quy). Lac Long Quan was the son and sole successor of Kinh Duong Vuong (the first Hung king), who ruled over Xich Quy. He is thought to have become king in 2793 BC and figures prominently in many legends. In one, his wife, Au Co, gave birth to a sac containing 100 eggs from which 100 children were born; this is the origin of the 100 Vietnamese family names, or so the story goes.

The annual event in Binh Da village will feature traditional ceremonies and cultural activities like folk games and calligraphy art.
