Songgui Temple Fair

01 September 2018 in Songgui, Heqing County

Songgui, a township in Heqing County in Yunnan's northwest, hosts a small but interesting temple fair on the 22nd day of the seventh lunar month.

Once it was a temple fair, then it developed into a large cattle and horse market, and now, with horses rarely used in the fields, it has just become a temple fair again. The Songgui Temple Fair thus illustrates the fortunes of Yunnan.

Festival held according to lunar calendar on 农历7月22.
