Kuixing Tower is one of the famous Taoist buildings, located in the Chengde City of Hebei Province. It was first built in 1828 by Hai Zhong, a magistrate in Chengde, to pray for the cultural prosperity of the place he managed. Kuixing (God of Literature) of Taoism was enshrined at here, so it was called as the Kuixing Tower. In the view of Chinese people, Kuixing can bless students to pass the imperial examinations. So there were buildings of this kind in many places before the 20thcentury.
