It resembles a standing girl with exquisite figure. Ancient legend says that the column is the embodiment of a celestial girl, named Yao Ji, daughter of the Queen of the West. She descended from heaven to help Da Yu to conquer the floods. She decided to stay among men to ensure the safety of boats which pass through the Three Gorges. Standing out from clouds and fog, she appears beautiful charming and mysterious.
