According to legend, the Palace of Wa is the place where Nu Wa created people from the soil and refined stones to make up the sky, and it is also the largest sacrificial place for Nu Wa in China. In Shexian County, Handan City, Hebei Province, sacrificial activities will be held from the first day to the fifteenth day of the third lunar month. People dressed in Qing Dynasty costumes came from all directions, praying to Nuwa empress for good weather and more children. At noon, people who participated in the activities got together to eat big pot rice to thank Nuwa empress for her kindness.
