Yulin City
Lying in the northern most tip of Shaanxi Province, the city of Yulin extends for 7,053 square kilomters in area. It has a long history and a well-developed culture. The wellknown Hetao Man was named after the paleoanthropological finds at Xiaoheqiao in Jingbian County. Ruins of the Yangshao and Longshan cultures are scattered along the Wading River. The long-standing history of Yulin has left it with unique tourist resources outside the Great Wall. The principal cultural relics and historical sites include the Zhenbei Beacon Tower, Tongwan City, the Temporary Palace of Li Zicheng, the Tomb of Fu Su, and the Wanfo (Ten-Thousand-Buddha) Cave.
