Gao Village

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gao Village a minor village featured within the famed ancient Chinese novel Journey to the West. Gao Village is a village that remains rather near to the main Tang Dynasty - thus being within China. Around chapter 18, Sanzang and Sun Wukong would arrive at this seemingly small village. Gao Village is run by an old man named Square Gao and his hard working villagers. This village is reputed for its amount of vegetarian food - as seen with Zhu Bajie, Square Gao's son-in-law. After Bajie is effectively subdued by Wukong due to his exceedingly gluttonous and lustful ways, this village's overall provisional production rises to a large margin. Sanzang, Wukong, and his new disciple all soon leave this village and continue their journey westward. This village would not be shown again following Bajie's subjugation during chapter 19.

Mount Huaguo, literally meaning Mount of Flowers and Fruit, is a major area featured within the famed ancient Chinese novel Journey to the West.

This mount had been featured as the birthplace of Sun Wukong, the main character within the novel. This mountain specifically holds many demons and monkeys in its population. Within this rather large mountain, many various areas remain hidden; one of such being the Water Curtain Cave. After the brave Sun Wukong rushed through a large waterfall and made it to this cave, every individual in the Flowers and Fruit mountain acknowledged Wukong as their king.

After Wukong becomes the mountains king, this mountain becomes exceedingly civilized and well trained for various future conflicts such as war. Such a trait is easily seen when Wukong had leaved this mountain for reasons such as protecting the Tang priest Sanzang. Due to the natural and civilized ways of this mountain set by Wukong, this mountain would effectively continue to thrive even after 500 years of conflict.
