Receiving Jingu is a annual pilgrimage from Weishan's Tianmoya Temple to Dali's Qingdong Shenbu Temple 神部.
According to legend, Jingu 金姑 was the third daughter of a local ruler in Dali who became the wife of Xinuluo 细奴逻, the founder of the Nanzhao empire. The story goes that she was a rebellious girl who after a fight with her father was kicked out of their household in the northern end of the Dali plain. She wandered around and met Xinuluo, a rough villager from modern Weishan county. They fell in love and married.
Her father missed her and after a few years he asked her to come back and sends a delegation to bring her home.
Her walk back from their village Longyutushan 龙于图山 back is remembered in this pilgrimage.
