The Ky Yen Festival lasts five days (from the 10th day to the 14th day of the second lunar month) at the Binh Dong communal house, which is located on the banks of Ba Tang canal and is one of the two communal houses which receive the largest number of visitors and worshippers in Ho Chi Minh City.

On the first day, worship is organized in memory of teachers in the village. The day after, a prayer for a quiet life is held according to the rituals of Buddhism. On the third day, there are rituals to request the temple’s exorcising charm, worshipping for the deity and worshipping for good weather, a peaceful life and prosperity. Worship for talented and righteous subjects who were founders of hamlets and built public welfare for villages is held on the fourth day. Finally, the last day is reserved for rituals for the temple itself.
