The processions take part in on the 6th-8th days of the first lunar month at Soc Temple, where he has risen to heaven, and on the 8th-9th days of the fourth lunar month at Phu Dong Temple, where the saint was born. There are also dozens of troop parades, thanksgiving processions and artistic performances. The festivals in both temples were recognized by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of mankind.
