The Mo Chu Ha Communal House worships King Le Dai Hanh (also known as Le Hoan). Legend has it that during our people’s war against the Song army, General Le Hoan once ordered his forces to go to Mo Chu Ha hamlet when it was dark and both men and horses were exhausted. The king allowed the warriors to rest. The next morning, the people pounded giay cake and presented it to the king as nourishment (it was the tenth day of the first lunar month). Because of the giay cakes, the soldiers were invigorated to battle the enemy. In the year 1006, King Le died. To demonstrate their appreciation for the wise king who was close and harmonious with the people when stationed in the village, the villagers of Mo Chu Ha sculpted sculptures, put up tablets, and incense bowls to worship him as Village Thanh Hoang. Every year on the 9th and 10th of January, people arrange traditional celebrations, participate in pounding giay cake, and hold games to celebrate King Le Dai Hanh’s contributions to the war against foreign invaders.
