|The worshipping rituals of the Hung Kings were recognized as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2012.
The Hung Kings founded the first state in the land of current Vietnam, called Van Lang (now Phu Tho province). Ruling the country through 18 generations (2879–258 BC), the Hung Kings taught locals how to cultivate paddy rice. They chose the Nghia Linh Mountain, the highest in the region, to perform rituals devoted to rice and sun deities to pray for lush crops.
To honor their great contributions, a complex of temples dedicated to them was built on the Nghia Linh Mountain, and the tenth day of the third month of the lunar year has for ages been the national commemorative anniversary for the kings.
