No demon can pass through a crooked bridge

  Who would believe that in the beginning of 19th century Shanghai county has been surrounded by this beautiful round town wall with 10 gates!
  The old stone bridges in Shanghai were accurately located by the principle of not pointing at the door of any building, which in feng shui is considered as bringing bad luck. There was only one exception, but soon the mistake was fixed: one of the bridges was pointing at the town wall gate and the people started complaining that this will invite Yin qi of the ghosts from the nearby graveyard to pass through the bridge and start making problems. So the design of the bridge was changed and since then it is known as the "Crooked Bridge". No demon can pass through a crooked bridge...
