Launch ceremony

Zhao Chenghua was among the nominees for being the inheritor of Sacrificial Rites of Imperial Family. The Guangdong provincial intangible cultural item originated in the Song Dynasty (960-1279) as the imperial Zhao Clan paid respect to their ancestors. The tradition spread from the Central Plains to Dachikan and Nanmen villages of Doumen and nearby areas over the past 700 years.

The event was handled by the Doumen District Culture, Radio, Television, Tourism & Sports Bureau along with city and local heritage protection centers under the auspices of the Zhuhai Culture, Radio, Television, Tourism & Sports Bureau. It raised awareness regarding intangible cultural heritage protection and showcased Zhuhai's achievements in preservation and inheritance.
