ABOUT XIAN CHINA


Xi'an ([ɕí.án] : Chinese西安), formerly romanized as Sian.  One of the oldest cities in ChinaXi'an is the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Starting point of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army of Qin Emperor.
Bandaraya Xian ialah bandar
yang dibangunkan didalam kota. Kota adalah merupakan pertahanan pada zaman dahulu daripada serangan musuh.  Ianya kekal sehingga hari ini walau pun telah beberapa kali diubahsuai bagi mengekalkan kesan sejarah lampau. Bahagian kelilingnya dibina parit dan dibawah kota dibangunkan pintu-pintu masuk dan keluar. Sejarah ringkasnya adalah seperti berikut.
The wall now stands 12 meters tall, 12-14 meters wide at the top and 15-18 meters thick at the bottom. It covers 13.7 kilometers in length with a deep moat surrounding it. Every 120 meters, there is a rampart which extends out from the main wall. All together, there are 98 ramparts, which were built to defend against the enemy climbing up. Each rampart has a sentry building, in which the soldiers could protect the entire wall without exposing themselves to the enemy. Besides, the distance between every two ramparts is just within the range of an arrow shot from either side, so that they could shoot the enemy, who wanted to attack the city, from the side. On the outer side of the city wall, there are 5,948 crenellations, namely battlements. The soldiers can outlook and shoot at the enemy. On the inner side, parapets were built to protect the soldiers from falling off.
















Bell Tower of Xi'an (Chinese: 西安钟楼), built in 1384. It is a symbol of the city of Xi'an and one of the grandest of its kind in China. The Bell Tower also contains several large bronze-cast bells from the Tang Dynasty. The tower base is square and it covers an area of 1,377 square meters. The tower is a brick and timber structure and close to 40 meters high.
The Great Mosque of Xi'an (Chinese西安大清真寺pinyinXīān Dà Qīngzhēnsì) is located near the Drum Tower on 30 Huajue Lane of Xian, Shaanxi province, China. The mosque covers 12,000 square meters.
