About Mianxian

Mian County is located in southern Shaanxi Province, on the western end of the Hanzhong Basin. It is under the administration of Hanzhong City. The county accumulated a lot of history and culture through the two Han dynasties and Three Kingdoms era. This long history has left behind many important cultural sites. The Neolithic archaeological site here is quite large and productive, a rare source of such cultural remains in the Hanzhong region. Mian County also boasts the Wuhou Tomb, the tomb of one of China’s historically preeminent politicians and military leaders, Zhuge Liang (181-234), who was also prime minister of the Shu Han kingdom during the Three Kingdoms Period. The Wuhou Temple is also China’s earliest built for Zhu and the only one built by imperial edict. Other county attractions include the marvelously constructed Bao River plank road (褒河栈道).

Mountain
Dingjun Mountain is a branch mountain of the Bashan Mountain Range. The Wuhou Tombs are located at its foot. This is the site of an ancient battlefield where the Shu fought against the Wei during the Three Kingdoms Period. It has been famous throughout history. Zhuge Liang once commanded his army here. When he passed away, he was buried beneath this mountain. The Dingjun Mountain road is quite dangerous. The Dingjun Mountain has twelve consecutive peaks one after another and stretches more than ten kilometers from the west to the east. It is like a dragon playing with beads on a string so it is sometimes called by the beautiful moniker “a dozen beads in the mountains."
