Huu Tiep Village (Làng Hữu Tiệp)

Nestled north of Ngoc Ha village (Ngọc Hà, Ba Đình), Huu Tiep Village (Làng Hữu Tiệp) has a rich history dating back to the early 19th century. 

Originally a camp under Noi district, Vinh Thuan district, and later, Hoai Duc district, Huu Tiep was a humble community with just over 30 acres of land and 445 residents in 1926. 

The village comprises three hamlets:

Bao Van, Dinh, and Thuong, with families tracing their lineage to Tong Son (Thanh Hoa) and Hoa Lu (Ninh Binh) from the 11th to 15th centuries. 

One of the most notable events in the village’s history occurred on December 28, 1972, when a B-52 plane of the American enemy was shot down by the capital’s army and people in the Thuong hamlet area, a symbol of the village’s resilience during the “Dien Bien Phu in the air” campaign at the end of December 1972.

Crafting Beauty:

Much like its neighbor, Ngoc Ha village, Huu Tiep thrives on flower cultivation, as the land does not favor rice cultivation. 

The village’s houses and gardens are intertwined with flowers, blurring the natural boundary between the two villages. 

This closeness led Hanoi residents collectively to refer to them as Huu Tiep-Ngoc Ha or Camp Hang Hoa. 

Flower cultivation has been the backbone of Huu Tiep’s economy, starting with domestic flowers and later expanding to foreign varieties in the 20th century. 

Villagers are skilled in floral decorations for scooters, cars, and various occasions, enhancing their lives compared to rice-growing villages in the region. 

Traditionally, the village’s houses were brick or tile, and while women traded flowers, men worked in various professions, with few pursuing civil service roles.

Historical and Cultural Gems:

Huu Tiep is not just a village; it’s a living museum of historical and cultural relics.

The communal house honors Huyen Thien Hac De, a legendary figure who supported the Ly Dynasty king against foreign invaders. 

The village is also home to the Bat Mau pagoda and two temples:

Cat Trieu temple is dedicated to the tutelary mother, and Truong Duoc temple worships Cuu Thien Huyen Nu, who is believed to be the queen who guarded the gunpowder warehouse. 

The village’s festival, held on January 19, is celebrated jointly with Ngoc Ha village, with both villages carrying the god’s tablet to Mount Sua (Botanical Garden) for joint worship.
