Shaanxi Province

Welcome to Shaanxi Province

Shaanxi province is located in the hinterland of China and is one of the world’s most important cradles of Chinese civilisation and culture. It’s home to some of the most impressive relics of the country’s past, with many more still buried beneath its soil. The province is a complete showcase of ancient temples, cities and palaces, as well as tombs and buildings, including the spectacular Emperor Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum, the Qianling Tomb, and the tomb of Wu Zetian – the first empress to rule China. Shaanxi’s museums and tombs are packed with vestiges of the country’s glorious history, such as bronze vessels from the Western Zhou dynasty (1046–771 BC), a copper carriage from the Qin dynasty (221–207 BC), stone sculptures hailing from the Han dynasty (206 BC – AD 220), gold and silver vessels dating back to the Tang dynasty (AD 618–907), China wares from the Song dynasty (AD 960–1279) and sculptures spanning thousands of years of Imperial China.
