Huang Fabao, the general secretary of Taiwan Xuantian Shangdi (God of the Profound Heavens) Institute, led nine members on a visit to Wudang from Feb 22 to 25 at the invitation of the strait exchange base in Wudang.

Xuantian Shangdi is known by many names, including Zhen Wu and Xuan Wu. Xuan Wu originated from the worship of stars and animals in ancient times. He was thought to be a divine animal that is a winding turtle and snake, and was believed to be in charge of the northern constellations.

The delegation worshipped Zhen Wu, visited scenic spots such as Golden Summit and Zixiao Palace, and communicated with researchers and scholars of Taoist culture in Wudang. They also discussed details about organizing the third Wudang Culture Forum with Shiyan city TV.

Yang Lizhi, vice-president of the Shiyan CPPCC and director of the Hubei Wudang culture research committee, met with the delegation.
