A Brief History of Wind Chimes
Suspending metal chimes to create sound was popular in Ancient Rome and bronze examples have been discovered at several archaeology sites. These tintinnabulum often featured tiny bells, which were believed to ward off evil spirts. In Eastern and Southeastern Asia, “wind bells” were hung at corners of pagodas to ward off both birds and evil spirits. They are also hung around temples and private homes to maximize the flow of chi.
Beliefs and Benefits
Whether you’re looking for some soft background music or believe they help circulate positive energy, tinkling chimes are a beautiful addition to any outdoor space. If you have an Asian-style garden or follow Feng Shui adding chimes are a must, but there are best-practices on where to place based on the number of pipes.
