Five-Ram Statue

Erected on the top of Yuexiu Mountain fifty years ago, the Five-Ram Statue has been the landmark of Guangzhou ever since.

The nickname of Guangzhou, namely, the city of rams traces its origin to a legendary story. Back in the Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC - 771 BC), five immortals descended onto Chuting (the ancient name of Guangzhou), each riding on a ram that held six strings of corn millet sprays in mouth. The immortals gave the millet sprays to the local people and expressed their good wish for no shortage of food. At the departure of the five immortals, the five rams turned into stones.

Eleven meters in height, the Five-Ram Statue now stands erect on top of Yuexiu Mountain, representing Guangzhou's landmark that is known both home and abroad.
