Chinese Mythology is the mythology that has been passed down in oral form or recorded in literature in China. China being one of the oldest civilizations in the world, it has produced a huge mythology that has changed over thousands of years and includes many varied myths from regional and cultural traditions.



China has a four-religion system that's collectively called Chinese folk religion: Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and ancestor worship or local communal deities (depending on the region). They each cover different spheres of a person's life: nature, ancestors, government, family, society, personal conscience, etc. and are practiced as necessary according to an individual's situation.

Chinese mythology is thus influenced by these four sources, all systems interwined in a complex celestial bureaucracy reflecting the ancient Chinese government
