Hello Wolson,Fengdu Locates on the northern bank of the Yangtze River, it’s an ancient city with a time-honored history, It’s known as the 'Ghost City' to most Chinese people. In the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 A.D. - 220 A.D.), There are two officials from the imperial court named Wang Fangping and Yin Changsheng, got bored with the political life in the court and came to Mt. Minshan outside the Fengdu City to practice Taoist teachings. Both of them later became immortals by carrying out self-cultivation. Their story widely spread and makes Mt. Minshan famous. their surnames Yin and Wang, combining together, sound very much like 'King of Hell' in Chinese, hence Fengdu got the reputation as the 'Ghost City'.
