Shaanxi Province places great value on its culture that profoundly endows Shaanxi's image. The Mausoleum of the Yellow Emperor, the Terracotta Army, Yan'an Pagoda, the Qinling Mountains, and other sites are regarded as spiritual and natural markers of Chinese civilization, democratic revolution, and geography. "One would assess Shanghai from the past 100 years of change, evaluate Beijing from the past 1,000 years of development, and appreciate Shaanxi from the past two millennia of history." Shaanxi is the cradle of the Chinese nation, the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, and the home of the Terracotta Army. If you want to understand China, please start with Shaanxi.
