A bird-view picture - Thầy Pagoda Festival, Hanoi

Located at the foot of Sài Sơn Mountain, and belongs to Quốc Oai District, Hà Nội,  Thầy Village (nowadays called as Thụy Khê Village) is the most well known pagoda where is worshipped Từ Đạo Hạnh, a monk of the Lý Dynasty who hailed from Láng Village (Hà Nội) and was endowed with supernatural powers.

Visitors travel to this village all the year round for several reasons. The village and Sài Sơn Mountain provide well-known scenic sports involving a nice lake (Long Trì Lake) which has in the middle of it a big house fro viewing yearly water puppets shows and two wooden bridges with curved tiled roofs, and many beautiful mountain caves.

Both the Thầy and Láng Pagodas Festivals are held in early March of each year, but differ from each other in terms of specific rites and ceremonies.

Two most noteworthy events and distinctive features of the festival are the procession of the tablets and the water show.

The Thầy Pagoda Festival is attractive tours because of the myth surrounding Monk Từ Đạo Hạnh and his feats, the beautiful scenery and the water puppet shows. Also, a romantic dimension must be added, as the labyrinth of caves and paths in the mountain are ideal for hide-and-seek games.
