Wang Xizhi, a master calligrapher of the Eastern Jin Dynasty, gave an account in his Preface to the Lanting Anthology of the ceremony he and his friends held inside the pavilion to drink and cleanse away evil influences on the third day of the third lunar month in 353, and ever since, the pavilion has become a "sacred place" among Chinese calligraphers. At present, a calligraphical festival is held there on the third day of the third lunar month every year. Celebrated calligraphers in and outside of China often meet at the pavilion.|
