What To Expect

Yuexiu Park
Located atop Yuexiu Hill, the Five Rams Statue was built in 1960 from more than 130 pieces of granite. The statue represents the five rams who gave Guangzhou its nickname "City of Rams" and depicts the symbol of Guangzhou: five mythical rams who bore five immortals - the city's founders 2000 years ago. Back then, as legend goes, Guangzhou was barren; the rams carried sheaves of rice, teaching its residents how to grow rice and ending the specter of famine forever, ensuring an eternity of bumper harvests. When the immortals departed, the rams turned to stone.
