Ngo Quyen was born in Duong Lam, about 60 km north of Hanoi.

He entered the army and quickly rose through the ranks and in 934 AD he cunningly defeated the Chinese overlords at the famed Battle of Bach Dang, He placed sharp bamboo poles in the mouth of the river, then sent his small boats out to entice the Chinese fleet to chase them. The small boats navigated the booby traps, but the Chinese ships were impaled on the stakes.

This victory paved the way for the independence of Annam (which was to become part of the future Vietnam).

Ngo Quye was made king and established the Ngo Dynasty, which many consider to be the first Vietnamese dynasty.

On a day trip to Duong Lam Ancient Village we took to bicycles to ride through rice padi to visit the Ngo Quyen Temple built in his honour, and a little further visited his tomb, which sits on a small rise overlooking a lake.
