Chinese Myth

One day, a girl flew from the clouds. She rode her magic wand to the stream and returned a jar of pure spring water.

The girl sprinkled the spring water on every corner of the golden Canyon, and suddenly everything revived.

In order to thank the wand girl for her help, the king took off the touchstone ring from his hand and smashed it.

Since then, the golden canyon has regained its vitality and presented a beautiful and splendid scenery.
