Dedicated to the Goddess
Kim Thái


Every year, the Phu Giay Festival commemorates Lieu Hanh – the mother goddess of Vietnamese folk religion – with processions to the Phu Giay Pagoda in Kim Thái, 80 kilometres east of Hanoi. Devotees dressed in traditional costumes carry bamboo poles with colourful decorations in honour of the goddess. The temple also hosts traditional games such as wrestling, as well as performances like lion dances and folk dancing.
