The legend of the Great Wall of China is actually a very romantic story about a girl named Meng Jiang Nu the
daughter of a garden owner that married Fan Qi, one of the workers building of the Great Wall of China. Shortly
after the wedding Fan Qi had to go away and continue working at the Great Wall leaving his wife home waiting for
Winter came, and there was no sign of Fan Qi so his wife decided to go look for him and bring him some warm
clothes that she made for him. Once she reached the place where her husband was supposed to be she learned that he
was dead and built into the Great Wall.
Meng Jian Nu was so devastated and she cried so much that the wall got broken into pieces and many other bodies
were revealed. In order to find out which one belonged to her husband she cut off her fingers and let the blood
flow around the wall until it all flow into one body, the dead body of her husband. Finally knowing which body
belonged to Fan Qi, Meng Jiang Nu buried him after their tradition, and afterwards jumped into the river and
committed suicide. There is a temple in memory of Meng Jiang Nu at the eastern side of the Great Wall of China.

developed a business and offers up to five hundred seats for the wedding reception. A large wedding reception will

villa or a chalet where you can serve a traditional Chinese meal, served by a well trained butler.
