Lang Ong - Ba Chieu Festival

Lang Ong - Ba Chieu Festival

 

Le Van Duyet Temple, located in Binh Thanh District, is dedicated to Officer Le Van Duyet and his wife. An annual festival takes place on the anniversary of the death of Le Van Duyet.

 

This festival honors the man and his wife on the 1st day of the 8th lunar month. It often begins earlier than, and can last well after, the official ceremony.

 

In addition to traditional southern rituals, there are performances of Vietnamese opera in the temple's front area. Devotees burn incense and paper votive objects and also consult the oracle for answers to questions concerning their life, family, marriage or work, and wish for property, good luck and promotions.

 

The temple is very tumultuous and jubilant at the beginning of spring. There are a lot of devotees worshiping, obscured by incense-smoke in the middle and central sections.
