Origin
Dated back to early 1800s, Chau Doc was a desert, sparsely populated region and often harassed by Xiem La enemy. One day, on pursuing local people to Sam Mount’s peak, enemy found a precious statue and decided to steal it. On the way carrying down the mountain, the statue was dropped causing one arm broken. The enemy failed to lift it up so left it in the forest. Many villagers followed their dream and tried hard to bring the statue down the mountain building temple to honor, hoping that she would bring them better crops and better lives. But none succeeded to lift the lady up. Not until Thoai Ngoc Hau came to govern the village, the statue was managed to carry to Sam Mount foot by nine fresh virgins. Here the lady temple was built and that date was chosen to celebrate Ba Chua Xu. Mekong river tours
