They are also the only existing stone inscriptions of state sacrificial ceremonies relating to maritime navigation organized by governments of ancient China. Set on rock cliffs of Jiuri Mountain on the north bank of Jinjiang River, the stone inscriptions record a unique history of official rituals launched in the ancient port of Quanzhou on a regular basis to pray for voyage safety and favorable wind. The 10 pieces of stone inscription,distributed in the eastern and western peaks respectively, exhibit the time-honored maritime tradition of Quanzhou and the well-established system of maritime trade management of ancient China.
