Ancient Xi’an Restored in Major Preservation Project

Xi’an, located in the Shaanxi province of China, is an ancient city that has thousands years of history and attract millions of tourists each year. Dating back to the Western Han Dynasty, Xi’an was known as Chang’an, which means “perpetual peace” in classical Chinese, and was an ancient capital for more than 10 dynasties. It was also the center of Chinese politics, economy and culture, as well as an international metropolitan city where many international exchanges took place.

Today, the city is undertaking a massive preservation project to restore many cultural relics still housed in the city. Some of these preservation actions include building a “relic park” that will cover the center of the Northwest Xi’an and will reflect the look of ancient Chang’an as it was 2,000 years ago. The Weiyang Palace will be a major focus in the preservation projects, since it was the site of many major historical events, including the inauguration of the Silk Road during the Western Han Dynasty.
