East of the Taihang Mountains, bordered by the Yellow River and north to the Lvliang Mountains, Shanxi is a land of rivers and mountains. With its gullies of the Loess Plateau, historical charm, deep courtyards, and ancient architectural treasures, Shanxi embodies timeless miracles.

This region boasts over 28,000 ancient architectural relics, with more than 400 of them dating back over 800 years. They have witnessed the ebb and flow of dynasties, bearing the vicissitudes of life like a scroll of history.
