The Mausoleum of the Yellow Emperor is located in Qiaoshan Mountain in the north of Huangling County, Shaanxi Province. The name of the Yellow Emperor was Xuan Yuan, who was said to be the chieftain of the clan tribe in remote ancient times, and is esteemed as the ancestor of the Huaxia nation. The mausoleum was said to be built as a sacrificial altar by Emperor Wudi of the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD), who went by the place on a punitive expedition to Shuofang. It was repaired in the following dynasties without exception. (Photo Source: xtour.com)
