- The Basic Annals of Shu states: “In Wudu there was a man who transformed into a woman. She was beautiful and was a mountain spirit. The king of Shu took her to be his wife. She was not accustomed to the local environment and became ill and wished to return home, but the king of Shu detained her. Before long she died. The prince of Shu sent soldiers to Wudu, and they transported earth to bury her in the center of Chengdu city. The ground covered several mou, and the spot was called Wudan.”
