Guan Yu (100AD-819ADI, otherwise known as Yunchang, was born in the region of Xiezhou of Hedong (a sub-district of present-day of Yuncheng, Shanxi Province) and become a renowned general during the Three Kingdom era of China.

Due to his outstanding civil and military talents as well as his virtues of loyalty and righteousness, he has been revered as a God of War, and worshiped as bodhisattva in the Mahayana Buddhism and as a guardian deity in Taoism.

Lionized as a prominent example of Chinese civilization, his influences now extend national boundaries to Chinese communities all over the world and even the cultures across time and space.

Since his death, many Chinese people have respected him due to his high outstanding profile of integrity and worshiped him as one of the Gods from the grassroots through the emperors.

He has been embedded into the memory of the Chinese people for his five moral characteristics:

  1. Honesty
  2. Loyalty & Grateful
  3. Constancy
  4. Ethical Behavior
  5. Bravery and Courage
