Photos Taken in China, July 24-26, 2002

Xi'an City Wall, and Vicinity

The Xi'an city wall has been renovated, and has become a tourist attraction. These photos were taken at and near the South Gate, where the north-south street that is Nandajie immediately inside (north of) the wall, Nanguan Zhengjie immediately outside it, and Changan Lu farther south, passes through the wall.

A large tower that is part of the gate complex:
