The Lady Pagoda Festival is a big event for Vietnamese people in the South.
The pagoda at No. 4 Nguyen Du Street was built on the Huong Chu Hieu canal in the mid-19th century by Chinese refugees.
According to the legend recorded on a stone tablet in the pagoda, Lady Thien Hau, who belonged to a virtuous family during the Song Dynasty (960-1279) in China, had the special gift of forecasting the weather to help people avoid acts of God./.
