Aixinga (Chinese: 愛星阿, d. 1664) was a grandson of Prince Yangguli (揚古利), head of the Kurka tribe, who won fame and title by his courage and energy in the wars of the Emperors Nurhaci and Huang Taiji of the Chinese Qing Dynasty. He served as the coadjutor of Wu Sangui in the invasion of Burma, 1661—2, which resulted in the surrender of the Ming pretenders from Yunnan. He was canonised as Guīkāng (敬康).
