According to the legend, on January 7, Fairy Au Co descended to earth, met and married to Lac Long Quan, then gave birth to a sac of a hundred eggs that finally hatched into a hundred sons, origin of the Lac Hong race. In Hien Luong commune, Ha Hoa district, with charming scenery and gentle people, Mother Au Co stayed there to teach people how to grow rice, raise mulberries, raise silkworms, and weave cloth until she and the fellow fairies flew back to heaven on the 25th of the lunar December, leaving a silk bib under the banyan tree. Here is the right place that people have built a temple to worship and burn incense to Mother Au Co forever.
