About Xianyang

Xianyang (咸阳), once the capital of the Qin empire, China’s first feudal dynasty, is located in the “800-Mile Qinchuan (八百里秦川)” hinterland. Glorious Qin-era architecture can be seen everywhere in Xianyang, which boasts as many as 4951 cultural relics. On Wuling (五陵) Plain are the mausoleums of 28 Hang and Tang dynasty emperors, including Han Gaozu's Changling Mausoleum, Han Jingdi’s Yangling Mausoleum, Han Wudi’s Maoling Mausoleum, Tang Taizong’s Zhaoling Mausoleum, and Tang Gaozong and Wu Zetian’s Qianling Mausoleum. The presence of all these tombs has earned the area the moniker of “the Pyramid Capital of China.”
