At that time, Hung Yen area was also a swamp with a lot of reed and countless mosquitoes. Invaders were not familiar with terrains and often died of diseases caused by mosquitoes. Due to the fear of cold and being bitten by mosquitoes, they made sleeping bags and depend on her to tie the bags at night and open them in the next morning. When they were asleep, she and villagers carried the bags to throw into the river and the water washed them away to the sea. Every night, the number of troops lost more and more for unknown reason, they thought that this land was not good so they moved to another place. From then people in the area were peaceful to do business. The villagers set up a temple to worship her and named the village as A Dao. When the king Le Thai To ascended to the throne and knew her story, he appointed her as the Goddess and repaired her temple. Dao Dang village now has her temple and statue. The temple festival is held on the 1st to 6th February (in lunar calendar) every year. She is considered as one of the first founders of the Ca Tru art in our country.
