Symbols

Other than an auspicious burial site, the specific design features of a grave also determine if it is auspicious or not. In Chinese history, stone structures have always been erected beside important infrastructures like mausoleums and palaces, to allow cosmic currents to flow freely through the stone sculptures to the nearby infrastructure.

This flow of cosmic currents is believed to bring about an auspicious aura. In the case of gravesites, different stone structures and symbols have their own unique functions.
