Statue of the Five Goats

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The granite Statue of the Five Goats is situated in the west part of Yiexiu Park in central Guangzhou and was erected in 1959 to honor the city symbol. The legend has it that 5 celestial beings brought five goats into Guangzhou. The goats were all carrying rice, which symbolized that they would make sure that the area would always be free of food shortage. Guangzhou has paid tribute to these benevolent goats by making them the symbol of the city. There are many goat statues in the Goat City and the Statue of the Five Goats is the most impressive.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
