Attraction Description
Big Wild Goose Pagoda, built in 589 A.D. in the Sui Dynasty, is one of the most famous Buddhist pagodas in China. The temple was finished in 652 A.D. and has five stories and is 60 meters tall.
The Qin Terra Cotta Warriors are some of the oldest ever found in China and the biggest. They range from 1.78 meters to almost 2 meters in height. The warriors were all made by hand and the bodies were made separately from the rest of the soldiers and all the pieces then joined together.
The Ancient City Wall of Xi'an is one of the oldest landmarks of the city and the old city of Xi'an used to be contained within this wall. The wall was built in the 14th century at the request of Emperor Zhuyuanzhang. The city wall is tall, long and thick and the two main entrances are the North and South Gate.
