Speaking of Yangzhou Land, we have to mention the story of Liu Xiu, emperor of East Han Dynasty. According to legend, Liu Xiu who was busy enlarging an army and buying horses was chased by officers dispatched by Wang Mang. He escaped to the high mountain here but got nowhere to go as it faced the mountain in its three sides and one valley in the other end. In desperation, Liu Xiu jumped to the cliff. But he got blessed. A horde of grazing sheep gathered around and Liu Xiu fell on their back and narrowly escaped death. After he became king, he called the place ‘Yang Jiu Di (Emperor Saved by Sheep). Then it was called ‘Yang Zhou Land’. Despite its absurdity, the story tells us a lot.
