Luoyang

On the west of Henan Province at the eastern end of the Eurasia, Luoyang stretches across both banks of the middle reaches of the Yellow River. The city gets its name from its location on the sunny side of the Luohe River. Luoyang has a population of more than 6 million people.

Luoyang served as the capital for 13 dynasties and is the oldest capital with the longest history in China. 

Main attractions include: Longmen Grottoes, one of the three main treasure houses of stone inscription art in China; the White Horse Temple, the first temple constructed after Buddhism was introduced to China; the largest group of emperors’ tombs from after the Eastern Zhou Dynasty in Mangshan Mountain; and Shaolin and Zhongyue temples in Songshan Mountain.
