Feng Shui of the Blessed Land: Hokkien

Feng Shui of Blessed Places Fujian

Feng Shui has a far-reaching impact on future generations. People of different origins have their own Feng Shui requirements for tombstones. What are the characteristics of the blessed land and tombstone design that most Hokkien people use?

The Hokkien-style Feng Shui tombstone is designed as a turtle-shaped tomb, the part on the left and right sides of the tombstone that extends outward from the shoulder stone is called "curved hand", the more curved hands it has, the more Feng Shui it will receive.

Up close, you can notice that the column has a Wenchang Scholar's Brush stone design, similar to the brush tip commonly used in ancient times, implying that the descendants will be able to become scholars and artists, and excel in their academic performance.

In addition, there is an offspring gutter design at the back, which is similar in meaning to a descendant’s lane, that is, to make it easier for their descendants to earn a living.
