Wu Xian Guan Temple was established in 1377 and is dedicated to the five immortals. According to legend, during the reign of King Yi of the Zhou Dynasty , These names refer to the most famous story about the origins of Guangzhou in which the Five Celestial Beings came to Guangzhou riding on Five Celestial Rams and brought rice and the knowledge of rice cultivation to the people as a means of avoiding the scourge of famine. The Five Celestials Shrine was built to commemorate the celestials and houses the footprints of the immortals. More photo's can be found in one of my travelogues.
