On May 22nd, as the only one representative of Shunde folk-custom, Huanglian sacrificial ceremony was listed on 8th Provincial Intangible Cultural Heritage.

 

 

It is believed that Cangjie and Jusong were the creators of Chinese characters. Huanglian sacrificial ceremony is held annually to commemorate their contribution, consisting of worship, temple fair, first writing ceremony and rewarding.

 

Over the years, Huangliang community has made extensive effort in protecting and promoting this folk-custom, including the establishment of protection groups, investment in temple refurbishment and media promotion, etc.
