Additional Information

Introduction

The relic of Hutai is located to the west of Xinning Square in urban Xining. This is an important historic site bearing witness to the selection of Xining as the capital city by the Kingdom of Southern Liang during the" 16-nation period" of Eastern Jin. The site is erected using compressed loess clay, and used as a platform from which to inspect troops. Legend also has it that the King of Southern Liang once even stationed a 100,000-strong army in a display of his military prowess. Nowadays, however, all that remains of Hutai is a bleak earthen mould accompanied by several motionless statues standing next to it and overlooked by a number of highrise buildings, whereas the Southern Liang Kingdom has long vanished without a trace.
