No biographical information on Kinnara is available. One story from ancient Mt. Song records tells that in 1341 an eccentric monk with a stick unexpectedly appeared and then served at the temple kitchen. The monk defended the temple against the attack of the red turbans on March 26, 1351(Yuan Dynasty) and was then found out an incarnation of King Kinnara. Thereafter, Kinnara was revered as the guardian deity of Shaolin Temple. A Kinnara Hall was built and his statue enshrined inside.
