Yandi Mausoleum Features

Highlight
Although we can’t work out when Emperor Yan Mound was first built, according the records of history books, it must have been built before the Five Dynasty. In 967 A.D., Emperor Taizong of Song Dynasty assigned people to build a temple in front of Emperor Yan’s Mound and Emperor Kangxi and Emperor Daoguang of Qing Dynasty also assigned officials to stand gravestones here. Emperor Yan is o­ne of the ancestors of Chinese people, he and Emperor Huang are called Yanhuang.
According the historical tale, Emperor Yan was a great man, he exploited the original agriculture of Chinese people, and he was the initiator of the culture of farming and plantation. In the historical tale, he was a spirit relative to the inventions of agriculture, industry, commerce, medicine and civilization, so he has been revered and given sacrifice by later generations of Chinese people in different times.   Emperor Yan’s Mound is 6 m high and the diameter of its bottom is 27 m long. In front of the mound stands a gravestone set up by Emperor Daoguang in Qing Dynasty, writing the epigraph “Emperor Yan Shennongshi’s Mound”. In 1986, when the repair construction was finished, president Hu Yaobang also wrote a epigraph “Emperor Yan Shennongshi’s Mound”, which was carved into the white marble gravestone standing in the center of gravestone kiosk in front of the mound. All the Mound zone is surrounded by high mountains and Mishui River flows under the mountains, so the environment here is very quiet and peaceful. The leaders of CCP such as Jiang Zeming, Chen Yun, Hu Yaobang, Zhou Gucheng, Zhao Puchu came here and wrote epigraph. And Song Renqiong, Yang Ludai, Song Jian, Wang Enmao, Mao Zhiyong, Peng Peiyun successively came here to pay the respect to Emperor Yan and supervise the repair construction. Emperor Yan’s Mound tourist zone includes human sight as Emperor Yan’s Mound, Emperor Yan Temple, Fengshen Temple, Congde Lane, Huzhenguan Temple, Luyuan Kiosk and Holy Fire Dais, and natural sight such as Luyuan Cave, Dragon Head Stone, Dragon Claw Stone and Flower Washing Pool, all of them are very attractive.
