Description:

Canton- the Temple of Five Genies The name of this fascinating Taoist Temple has a few translations one being the Five Genies Temple or the Temple of the Five Immortals. In Chinese, it is called &quotWuxian Guan&quot. 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… This temple was built around one of the gigantic footprints left by one of these five celestial beings.
