About Liquan

Liquan County is a county in Xianyang City, Shaanxi, located in the southwest of the province’s Guanzhong region, where the Loess Plateau and Wei River Valley converge. Liquan has a long history and is one of the major sources of cultural relics in Shaanxi. There are many ancient sites here, most famously the Zhaoling or Zhao Mausoleum of Emperor Taizong of Tang. The county's Tang-era (618-907) Su Tomb has more stone carvings than most tombs from the era, which are also better preserved than those from most tombs from the era. Other popular tourist attractions include Yuanjia Village, Liquan Lake, and the “Imperial Peach Orchard” (Yutaoyuan).

Cemetery
The Qinling Mausoleum was constructed in the year 684 and is one of the rare places in China - or even the world - where emperors from two dynasties and an imperial husband and wife are interred. Emperor Gaozong of Tang (Li Zhi) and his wife Wu Zetian, China’s only empress, are interred here. This mausoleum is also one of the few imperial tombs in China that has not been looted. The Qinling Mausoleum Scenic Area is quite large. In addition to the Qinling Mausoleum itself, it also contains many “companion tombs” (peizangmu) in which members of the imperial court and major ministers are buried. The tombs of Prince Zhanghuai, Crown Prince Yide, and Princess Yongtai are currently being excavated.
