China Cities with Good Feng Shui
Followers think Feng Shui is closely related to the rise and decline of a city. A city with good Fengshui, no matter how small it is, has the magical power to produce creative minds and gifted talents from generation to generation. Listed below are some prime examples of these cities.
Built based on the Eight Diagrams Picture, a tool used by Feng Shui masters to map a location, Tekes itself resembles an Eight Diagram Picture centering on its City Park and radiating outside to east, west, south, north, northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest eight directions. Its founder is Qiu Chuji, a famous Taoist from the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 - 1279 AD), who found that the site had majestic mountains, flat plains, and sufficient water. Tekes is nowadays an important historical landmark in the study of Fengshui.

Kunming is surrounded by mountains to the east, west and north sides and faces Dianchi Lake in the south. The effect is such beautiful scenery of mountains and water adding radiance and beauty to each other. In addition, with a low latitude and high altitude, the city enjoys a pleasant climate, thus known as the ‘Spring City’. Kunming is a great place to live.
Beijing is located on the north point of North China Plain, hence having flat terrain. The mountains in the north and northwest weaken the cold northwest wind in winter, making the city more livable. Its layout is bilaterally symmetrical to the royal palace - Forbidden City, which makes its Fengshui even better.
As one of China’s four ancient capital cities, Nanjing Nanjing boasts green mountains, deep water, and flat plains making it a great place among the world’s big cities. Thanks to its good Fengshui, although damaged by war several times, the city could always survive and flourish on the resultant debris.
According to ancient tradition, the Feng Shui of Xi'an must have been inspected by numbers of masters before being made a capital city. So is Xi'an, a capital city of thirteen dynasties. Its good Fengshui is also reflected in its status as the cradle of the Chinese nation and the birthplace of Chinese civilization.
As another ancient capital city of China, the reasons why Luoyang has good Fengshui are the same with Xi'an. Mt. Mangshan on its north side has the best Fengshui of the city, hence the Chinese saying: “Be born in Suzhou and Hangzhou, and buried in Mt. Mangshan”.
Chengdu is the capital of the Shu Kingdom in history. The good Fengshui contributes considerably to its status as “Land of Abundance” enabling the producing of poets, Sichuan cuisine, and embroidery, etc.
The good Feng Shui of Hangzhou derives from Mt. Tianmu and its essence is in the beautiful West Lake. Its history as temporary capital in the Southern Song Dynasty makes its Fengshui even better.
Wenzhou was built by a famous Fengshui master, Guo Pu in the Jin Dynasty (265 - 420 AD). After inspecting local geographical conditions, he built the city on south bank as the soil on north bank was too soft; this also allowed houses facing south to get sunshine. In addition, he constructed sixty-four springs and five ponds to adjust the layout of the city. What’s more, its location of being surrounded by mountains has provided effective protection from wars over the centuries.
