FoShan (08-Jan-09) – YeWen & HuangFeiHong

Again, unexpected turned out to be quite fun.

The highlight of FoShan is the ZuMiao (Ancestor Temple). It was not to my knowledge that the exhibition halls of YeWen (martial arts teacher of actor Bruce Lee) and HuangFeiHong were situated inside the compound too. The movie stories had exaggerated their heroic background. In fact they were just ordinary people.

The main structure of ZuMiao is frequented by devotees, quite different to the other temples. In general, FoShan is worth for a day trip from GuangZhou.
