Born in the 700s as Chen Jinggu. As a teenager, Chen Jinggu embarked on a journey to learn shamanism and martial arts from a well-known shaman on Mount Lu (Mayflower 2013).  Lady Ge, Chen's mother, wanted to find her daughter a husband, but was unsuccessful as Chen rejected all her efforts (Mayflower 2013).

After losing all her strength, Chen Jinggu had then collapsed, and passed away at age 24 (Mayflower 2013).

"Lady Linshui was first recognized in the Emperor’s Register of Sacrifices around the year 1250" (Mayflower 2013).


"The first temple built in Her honour was constructed in 792 in the village of Daqiao. Her mummified body now rests here together with the remains of the magical snake" (Mayflower 2013).
