Site of Xanadu you gotta go here

The site of Xanadu is located north of the Great Wall and consists of the Kublai Khan’s legendary capital city that was designed under the direction of the Mongol ruler’s Chinese advisor Liubingzhdong. The city was designed in 1256.

The Site of Xanadu occupies a surface area of 25,000 hectares. It was built to try and fuse the nomadic Mongolian culture with the Han Chinese culture. It is from Kublai Khan that the Yuan dynasty ruled China and beyond for a period of more than 100 years. Further, the city became a religion hub where the Tibetan Buddhism was spread over most of Asia. The religion is still widely practiced today.

The site follows the traditional feng shui layout that involved building of a city next to a mountain and a river. The city features palaces, temples, nomadic encampments, tombs and the ever popular Tiefan’gang canal

The site of Xanadu is a classic grassland capital that represents the best of cultural fusion assimilation, as well as the nomadic and agrarian revolutions of the northern Asia. It is located on the Mongolian Plateau.

It is from Xanadu that the mounted warriors of Kublai Klan unified the agrarian civilizations of China and assimilated most of the other civilizations. This is how the Yuan Empire was able to spread its tentacles all over Asia. The evidence of large water control works especially on the Tiefang’an Canal shows how China was able to feed its populations from the onset of the Yuan Empire. Kublai Khan has ‘wowed’ all the visitors that were able to get to the city during its heydays. The city is today legendary, especially in its role of spreading the Buddhism religion to the rest of the world.

A visit to the Site of Xanadu is like a visit to a sacred shrine. It is sort of like what Jerusalem is to the Islam and Christianity. It is the kind of place you visit to get the satisfaction of a pilgrim. Whether you are Buddhist or not, this site is worth your every penny…while at it, make sure you say a little prayer at the site.
