Thus, Cili records is said that: not know the years outside Maohuajie.” Rewarding God and exceeding Willing and going to temple market is the most solemn festival of the people of Dayong Tujia Minority and Bai Minority.

In old records: “The acquainted family placed Lord at the center, sacrificing at seasons”. Where the family temple has Lord to be sacrificed, determining the Lord birthday as the fair date; so determining the death day of a historical celebrity as the temple fair day. Because the Lord's birthday date or death day is different, so the fair date increases naturally.
