"YAOGI" WAS SAID TO HAVE BEEN WORSHIPPED IN THE FORM OF A SACRED ROCK AT THE SUMMIT OF A HILL CALLED THE "MOUNT OF THE SORCERESS". ACCORDING TO AN OLD LEGEND, SHE WAS ONE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF THE" EMPEROR YAN", A LOVELY YOUNG MAIDEN WHO DIED BEFORE SHE WAS WED. THE "GREAT EMPEROR OF HEAVEN", MOVED BY HER INNOCENCE, CONFERRED HER SOUL TO THE "GODDESS OF THE CLOUD AND RAIN". HENCEFORTH, IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS, SHE WOULD BE A PIECE OF CLOUD, DRIFTING AMONG THE HILLS AND CANYONS. WHILE AT DUSK, SHE WOULD BE A SPELL OF DRIZZLE, POURING OUT HER GRIEF AND COMPLAINT TOWARDS THE HIGH MOUNTAIN AND FLOWING WATER.

WHEN SHE CAME TO THE MIST-ENVELOPED WUSHAN MOUNTAINS, SHE SAW TWELVE DRAGONS CAUSING TROUBLE TO THE PEOPLE, AND SHE THEN DECIDED TO ELIMINATE THE EVILS. SHE KILLED ALL THE DRAGONS AND, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE, SHE KILLED ALL THE DRAGONS AND IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE THERE, AND TURNED INTO A PEAK. IT IS SAID THAT "YAOGI "BRINGS GOOD FORTUNE TO THOSE WHO GLIMPSE HER THROUGH THE MIST. STATELY SEATED, SHE GAZES SERENELY OVER THE TOP OF "WUSHAN", POINTING THE WAY FOR THE PASSING SHIPS AND PROTECTING THOSE MAKING A TREACHEROUS JOURNEY, DRIVING AWAY WILD ANIMALS, SPREADING DRIFTING RAIN FOR THE PEOPLE.
