Guan Li

The Guan Li is the coming of age ceremony. The name Guan Li refers to the ceremony for men, while the Ji Li refers to the one for women.

The age of the person is usually 20 and during the ceremony, the person obtains a style name. These ceremonies are now rarely practiced in China, but there has been a recent resurgence, especially from those who are sympatheic to the Hanfu movement.
