Goddess Kam Fa

Introduction

Goddess Kam Fa, also known as Holy Empress Jin Hua, commonly known as " Goddness of Fertility", is a legendary fertility goddess in Guangdong belief, especially in Pearl River Delta area. Kam Fa has been a local goddness of Lingnan, where Guangdong is located in; hence its culture has been  influenced by the Central Plains Area for a long time. And Guangzhou, as an important trading port city since the Tang and Song dynasties, its culture has been influenced by the Middle East and the West. Thus there is a significant religious and cultural diversity in Guangdong. However, among all those local gods and goddesses, only the story of Kam Fa could be  continuous on a long term basis and widely spread over. As there are not many goddesses in Chinese culture, especially female patron of women, Kam Fa hence becomes the only one in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
