General Introduction of Xi'an

Xi'an is the provincial capital of Shaanxi Province. It consists of nine municipal districts and a rural county, covering a total area of 9,983 square kilometres, and has a population of more than 10.37 million, of whom 1.46 million are classified as urban residents.

Called Chang'an in the old days, Xi'an is one of the seven ancient cities in China which can dates back more than 3,000 years. It has not only a long history but has been the capital city of many feudal dynasties at different times in Chinese history. Ever since the 11th century B. C. , there has been thirteen dynasties of Western Zhou, Qin, Western Han, Xin Mang, Eastern Han, Western Jin, Former Zhao, Former Qin, Later Qin, Western Wei and Northern Zhou as well as Sui and Tang dynasties that established their political centers here.

Xi'an, located along the bank of the Wei River in Shaanxi Province, is an important strategic point and a communication hub between the great northwest and the central China as it faces the Qinling Mountain Range in its front and the Tongguan Pass to the east. And so it is known as with the fantastic topographical terrain under the heaven.

As the starting point of the famous "Silk Road", Xi'an became the hub of international communication between China and the outside world from the Han Dynasty. From here commodities from the inland of China went transported to various places of central Asia, and even directly to the Mediterranean Sea and Europe. It played an important part in promoting economic and cultural exchanges between China of the Han and later epochs on the one hand and the countries of southern and western Asia and Europe on the other.

This role of the city reached its peak during the Tang Dynasty, when foreign residents including diplomatic envoys, students, priests and merchants are known to have taken up their abode here; a number of anecdotes are still popular today about the foreigners of the time. The important position occupied by the city in the past accounts for the great wealth of historical relics and monuments in Xi'an and its vicinities.

The modern city of Xi'an is the continuation of that in the long past. It is not only a city of importance controlling China's great west but also a frontier post in realizing the strategic target of the development of the northwest. Xi'an, aside from many such sites and attractions of historical and cultural interest as Big and Small Wild Goose Pagodas, Bell and Drum Towers, Shaanxi Provincial Museum, Museum of Stone Steles, Neolithic Museum of Banpo Village, Museum of Qin Terracotta Figures, Huaqing Hot Spring at the foothill of Lishan Mountain and the Great Mosque located in the Huajue Lane and so on, that are left over from ancient times, is one of the bases for developing the sophisticated science and technology — aeronautics and astronautics in China. In addition, Xi'an is still the central point of the standard time of China, the core of the Beijing Standard Time.
