Ancient City of Pingyao

As an excellent example of a traditional Chinese city, the walls and urban fabric of Pingyao, in Shanxi province, were formed in the 14th century and show the evolution of architectural styles in the following five centuries. Its major buildings associated with banking and numerous dwellings are testimony to a commercial hub with a wide business network. Shuanglin Temple is known for its collection of more than 2,000 decorated clay statues.

Xi visited the ancient city in 2022, and emphasized the importance of preserving cultural relics and upholding cultural confidence. He then said cultural heritage belongs to not only this generation, but also the generations to come.
