Sanyuan Palace, situated at the southern foot of Yuexiu Hill, is the oldest and largest Taoist building in Guangzhou. The history of the temple can be traced back to the Eastern Jin Dynasty (316-420), and its original name was Yuegangyuan. In the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the site was rebuilt, in its original image and received its current name. As one of the city's two best-known Taoist temples, Sanyuan Palace is a focal point of celebration and prayer for Guangzhou people during festivals.
