Nearly 100,000 people flock to worship a giant statue of Kwan-yin - a goddess widely venerated in China - at Baofeng Temple atop Xiqiao Mountain in Fushan city, Guangdong province on Feb 25, 2014. The temple organizes large-scale banquets to offer free food to visiting disciples on the 26th day of the Chinese lunar year with those who get the food believed to be blessed to get rich. The tradition originates from a legend that Kwan-yin, disguised as an ordinary woman, once gave food and money to starving local people. [Photo/icpress.cn]
