Ho Dai Dung, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee, delivered a flower basket to congratulate the Party Committee, administration, and people of Chi Tien commune in Thanh Ba district.

Du Yen Temple in Chi Tien commune honors female commander Nguyen Thi Hanh, the head of Hai Ba Trung’s army. In 1993, the Ministry of Culture and Information designated the Temple as a National Monument. The feasts are celebrated on lunar January 15, lunar February 15, and lunar January 10. Among them, lunar January 15 is the most significant holiday. According to legend, Hanh Nuong picks men from Bong Chau hamlet to recruit troops, and organizes a welcome party to encourage them. She offered tributes to heaven and earth before leading his troops back to meet Hai Ba Trung.

The Du Yen Temple event lasts three days (from January 13 to 15) and is a serious ritual and event. The festival has a variety of events, including a Banh Giay pounding tournament, an art competition, a shrimp nest fighting competition, a cockfighting competition, a women’s volleyball competition, a men’s volleyball competition, and a chess competition mixed with traditional games. The most distinctive are the water procession from the Red River and the Canh Tien dance (fairy dance).
