Worship Panhu to pray for bumper harvest



  Luxi County is the birthplace of Pan Hu Culture. It is said that the daughter of Gao Xin Shi, one of the three kings and five emperors, married Pan Hu and lived in seclusion in Luxi within Yuanshui River basin. Pan Hu Culture is confirmed and inherited by many local folk customs. Villagers in Hongtuxi Village, Baisha Town, Luxi County hold a ceremony to offer sacrifices to Pan Hu at the village's Pan Hu Temple so as to worship their ancestors and pray for bumper harvest. The picture shows the local people dancing sacrificial dance " Dance with Fragrant Food (Tiaoxiang)" during the ceremony.
