Travel Pictures Gallery.com - China - Xi'an
a series of travel images from China, Xi'an is a city in Shaanxi Province. Its history goes back some 3000 years as capital of 13 dynasties. In ancient times it was known as Chang'an. It was an important destination in times of the Silk Road and near the present city you can visit the impressive remains of the Terracotta Army, emperor Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum (images in a separate chapter). Present day Xi'an has a pleasant old town centre, strolling through the old Muslim quarter feels a bit like stepping back in time.
