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).

Zhao Mausoleum is the tomb of Li Shimin, Emperor Taizong of Tang Dynasty. It is located on Jiuzong Mountain in the northeast of Liquan County, Xianyang. Zhao Mausoleum is one of the largest among the "Eighteen tombs of the Tang Dynasty" in Guanzhong, Shaanxi. The scenic spot is arranged along a central main road, with the memorial tablets of generals of the Tang Dynasty placed on both sides. After entering the gate, you will find that the terrain rises. There are four steps on the main road, with one building site on each step. The entire scenic spot is of great historical significance and value.
Qinling Mausoleum
4.4/5

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.

Historical Site
Xi'an City Wall is a landmark of this ancient city. The city walls that we see now were built in the early years of the Ming dynasty and they are now more than 600 years old. The walls were built on the foundations of the imperial city of the Tang Dynasty and they are formed together with a series of defensive installments such as moats and turrets. At present, Xi’an City Wall can be accessed by many city gates. Visitors can choose the nearest one to them. The South Gate is the visitor entrance of Xi’an City and is also the city gate with more tourists. Cycling on the ancient walls is a good experience. Riding on the wall overlooking the ancient capital of the thirteenth dynasty, you will have a feeling of travelling through time.
