During Emperor Qianlong’s reign in the Qing dynasty, Guangji Temple was the center of belief forneighboring villages, and the villagersformed the Song-JiangBattle Array for the Temple’s fair and festival.A dancing lion always performsa dance before the Song-Jiang Formation sets off. Given that the lion dance art and imposing power of the Song-Jiang Formations from the villages of the Qianzhenarea always outmatch those from other areas, it has eventually won the fame of “the Best Lion Dance”.As entertainmentduring the spare time of busy farm work, farmers used to use the bamboo dustpan as the lion’s head whenperforming the lion dance, forming a unique lion dance culture. In 1935, the “Si Shi Jia ” (Lion Dance Festival) was officially named after the former name of theShijia region (now combined under the Qianzhen District) . Centering on Guangji Temple, Qianzhen District has been driving the “One SpecialtyPer District” campaign in accordance with the City Government’s policy. The 2004 and 2005 “Lion Dance Championship” was hosted by Guangji Temple.
