Huangdi, or the Yellow Emperor, is one of the legendary five emperors and a cultural hero who is considered in Chinese mythology to be the ancestor of all Han Chinese. It is believed that he reigned from 2697 BC to 2597 BC, and his personal name is thought to have been Gongsun Xuanyuan. The birth place of Huangdi is a holy place for overseas and domestic Chinese descendants to worship their ancestors. On the third day of the third month of the Chinese lunar Calendar each year, hundreds of thousands of Chinese people go there to attend the annual ancestor-worshipping ceremony.
