Located in the middle and south part of Guangdong Provnce and hinterland of the Pearl River Delta, Foshan City is called “Chan” for short. With a long history, Foshan is a famous historical and cultural city. In 628, the 2nd year of Taizong's reign in the Tang Dynasty, three statues of Buddha were unearthed on Tapo hummock, hence the name “Foshan”. In the Tang and Song Dynasties, it was one of the four famous towns in China. With a big reputation, Foshan has been praised as “center of Guangdong's voiles”, “capital of potteries in the south” and “cradle of medicinal materials in the areas south of the Five Ridges”, since ancient times.
