Chinese Dragons occupy a very important position in Chinese mythology. Ancient China Dragons show up in literature, the arts, architecture, poetry and many other places in Chinese culture. They are a symbol in the pagan religions. They posses great magical powers.

The Lung dragon, in Chinese mythology, is one of four main animal figures that were seen to be or rather believed to be well-meaning or were symbols of good luck. Of these the dragon, probably because of its obviously powerful image, became a symbol of the Chinese emperor.
