Mach Lung Temple Festival in Vietnam

The temple worships three Kings in the King Hung XVIII: Minh Lao Hung Dai Vuong, Minh Lao Hung Doan Dai Vuong and Minh Lao Hung Nghi Dai Vuong.
Three people are good at history,
geography and fengshui, so they are granted to be the generals and assigned to prevent the enemy from the sea and Red River.

After receiving the mission,
they chose Lung Trang to be the place to build general headquarters. Then he thought this is a good place and bring
his mom from Hai Duong province to build the house and farm together with helping people in Lung Trang in agriculture. Then people love the three generals and the mother, so they build the temple.

Through many historical ups and
downs, the temples have still beautiful for its ancient vestiges. The architecture of the temple still preserves the patterns
of the 17 th and 18 th centuries. The temple is still merely untouched with
the Chinese character of book and three thrones and tablets in 19 th century.

With the historical and architectural values, Mach Lung temple is listed to be the national vestige in 1993.
Mr. Vuong Xuan Vien, haid of Mach Lung hamlet, said people want to show their respect to the ancestors and the great grandparents so in three days of
festival; they made the representative for production, classmates and families
to come to temple to offer objects.

All the things in family are paused to the day of God.
Since Mach Lung temple is
acknowledged to be the national
historical vestige, people often hold the procession once in a five year. Along with the traditional rituals, there are
also traditional games like cock fighting, chess, quan ho singing, etc, which attract many people and visitors.
