The Yan Emperor Mausoleum is located on Changyang Mountain in Shennong Town, Weibin District, Baoji City. It is the main place for the descendants of Yan and Huang to seek roots and worship their ancestors. Yandi (Yan Emperor) was born on the shore of Jiangshui (in the present-day Baoji City) from 6000 to 5500 years ago. With historical development, his descendants migrated southeast along the Weishui River to Hubei, Hunan, Shanxi and other places. Above, Emperor Yan is a clan tribe with several lineages. Therefore, there are five hometowns of Yan Emperor (the hometown of Yan Emperor) throughout the country. Baoji in Shaanxi, Suizhou in Hubei, Yanling County in Hunan, Huitong County, and Gaoping in Shanxi are regarded as the hometown of Emperor Yan. Among them, Emperor Yan I and Emperor Yan both lived in Baoji, Shaanxi. According to Emperor Yan, Emperor Yan only existed in Baoji.
