Abstract：Mountains-ritual, Heaven-ritual and Chaice ceremony stayed for long relate to their political meaning and cultural connotation, and the principle of Khitan-centred and a limited degree of Han-assimilated of ruling class in Liao Dynasty. Specifically Mountains-ritual and other rituals not only strengthen the legitimacy of monarchy, but contain the natural and ancestor worship of northern tribe. In Liao Dynasty, the Khitan’s old haunts is political and military areas and it embodies Khitan-centered principle, Liao ruling class is only a limited degree of Han-assimilated. This is because the ruler pursues a “Dualistic-Politics” dominated by the Khitan noble that keeps the northern tribe features for Liao Dynasty. So, we should not overestimate the Han-assimilated degree of Liao Dynasty.
