More than 200 Taiwan compatriots will attend a ceremony held on the mainland to pay homage to Huangdi, also known as the Yellow Emperor, on Tomb-sweeping Day which falls on April 5.

Hung Hsiu-chu, former chairperson of the Kuomintang (KMT) party, and New Party chairman Yok Mu-ming will participate in the event, along with residents from the island, An Fengshan, spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The legendary emperor is considered the founder of the Chinese civilization and the ancestor of all Chinese.

The annual gathering at the emperor's mausoleum in Huangling County, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, occurs on Tomb-sweeping Day, a holiday when Chinese mourn their deceased family members.
