Vietnam mapKHONG LOThis god was the primordial giant who separated the sky and the Earth, setting up columns to help support the sky similar to many other such deities in other pantheons. His breath is the wind and his voice the thunder.

When he saw that the propping up of the sky had “taken” he broke off the uppermost portions of the support columns and transformed them into stars in the sky (or in some myths into various mountain peaks or islands). Where he had dug out the Earth to build the columns oceans were formed.

He set up the 4 Sacred Beasts to guard the 4 remnants of the columns here on Earth. Those remnants stood at each of the cardinal points: Long (dragon) guarded the base of the Eastern column, Lan (a mythical tiger/giraffe/saola/lizard  hybrid creature) guarded the Western column, Quy (a giant tortoise) guarded the Northern column and Phung (a giant bird) guarded the Southern column.

A giant female deity named GIAT HAI formed out of the mist and clouds, and Khong Lo fell in love with her.
