Do you know how the name “Xi ‘an” came from?Xi ‘an, as the capital of 13 dynasties in ancient China with the longest time, especially as the political, economic and cultural center of the most powerful dynasties such as Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui and Tang, has been called Chang ‘an for a long time.Chang ‘an chang ‘an, long peace, peace in four seasons, what a beautiful name ah!But later, why also called “Xi ‘an” such a name?At the end of the Tang Dynasty, the whole country was in chaos.After the fall of the Tang Dynasty, five dynasties and a dozen regimes, collectively called the Five Dynasties and Ten States, emerged successively in the Central Plains and were divided into western Shu, Jiangnan, Lingnan and Hedong.The five Dynasties were the Later Liang, Tang, Jin, Han and Zhou, and the ten states were the former Shu, The Later Shu, Wu, the Southern Tang, Wuyue, Min, Chu, the Southern Han, Nanping and the Northern Han.The city of Chang ‘an has been ravaged by war for years, with economic depression, population reduction and gradual decline of urban buildings. It has been unable to recover for many years and has become a “abandoned capital” in a real sense.It was not until the second year of Hongwu of Ming Dynasty (1369 AD) that Zhu Yuanzhang, emperor Taizu of Ming Dynasty, ordered the reconstruction of Chang ‘an City, which was expanded from east to north on the basis of the original Imperial city of Sui and Tang Dynasties, and formed the basic appearance of the city wall of Xi ‘an today. It was renamed Xi ‘an and the Xi ‘an Palace was set up for management, which has been used to this day.This is the origin of the name “Xi ‘an”.The history of a city is the history of a nation.Xi ‘an, a city you can’t miss, once you step into Chang ‘an, you can read thousands of years in a day.In the ancient city of Xi ‘an, you can see the history and future of China.Xi ‘an is the most famous city in China.The ancient city of Xi ‘an, warmly welcome you to come!# Xi ‘an # Chang ‘an 18 zi, telecom engineer, writer of beautiful articles, like poetry, prose and travel, hope to create the deepest poetry with the simplest words.Original code word writing is not easy, welcome everyone to pay attention to, support, like, exchange!I have always been very like Su Shi’s “thick zeng wrapped career, abdomen has poetry gas from China”, also like Confucius’s “friends come from afar, is not a joy”.I look forward to the acquaintance, intersection, interaction and communication with predestined persons!
