But, before their enthusiasm, kindness, and admiration for their virtues, the people respected their loyalty. Fairy and called them Nang Muong and Nang Bang.

Since then, people have built a temple so that the name of the temple is Nang Bang – Nang Muong or Ba Chua, Son Lam. Around March, when the white ban flower blooms in the region, the villagers come to the temple to burn incense and pray for peace in the hope of harvesting a full and prosperous crop. And the odd-year custom: people offer two-legged animals; In even-numbered years, people worship animals with 4 legs and 5 legs. And every 5 years, a big festival will be held to commemorate the merits of the two girls.

And March is also the month when the Ban flower festival is held in Chieng Khoa. The meaning of the festival is to pay homage to Ban – representing the pure whiteness with the faithful love of the Thai people.
