Shaanxi Yan'an——Sunset in Yanan pagoda Hill
Shaanxi Province

Situated in Northern Shaanxi Province on the Loess Plateau, Yan'an overlooks the middle reaches of the Yellow River, the cradle of Chinese Civilization. Yan'an, called 'Yanzhou' in ancient times, has a history stretching back about 1400 years and it has long been the political, economic, cultural and military center of North Shaanxi. Nowadays it is a city which boasts one district and twelve counties. Holding a prominent place in Chinese military history, Yan'an is a revolutionary holy place in China. It used to be the military headquarters during the Chinese Anti-Japanese War (1937-1945) and China's War of Liberation (1945-1949) and was the location of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party.

Yan'an Pagoda Hill is located by the Yanhe River, east of Yan'an, 1,076.3 meters above sea level. The hill is re-named after the pagoda was built. The pavilion-style pagoda, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), is 44 meters high with nine stories. You can get to the top but the brick pagoda is quite a climb. Nearby can be seen a large cast-iron 17th C bell which was cast in the Ming dynasty. Standing on top of the majestic pagoda, you can have a whole view of Yan'an City. The pagoda is the symbol of Yan'an as a sacred place in the Chinese revolution.
