Xi’an City Wall
Xi’an City Wall Located in the center of Xi’an City, the Xi’an City Wall measures 12 meters high, 18 meters wide at the base and 15 meters wide at the top. It is 13.7 kilometers long and the length of the east, west, south and north walls are, respectively, 2590 meters, 2631.2 meters, 3441.6 meters and 3241 meters.
It has four gates; Changle Gate in the east, Anding Gate in the west, Yongning Gate in the south and Anyuan Gate in the north. The existing wall was built between 1374 and 1378, making it over 600 years old.
It is the oldest and most well preserved ancient city wall in all of China. In 1961, the State Council announced that the Xi’an City Wall was included in the first batch of national important historical sites that received special preservation.
Every 120 meters of the city wall, there is an enemy platform, protruding outside the city wall, and the top is level with the city wall. This is specially set up for shooting and killing enemies that climb the city. Half of the distance between the enemy stations is just within the effective range of the bow and arrow, which is convenient for shooting the enemy attacking the city from the side. There are a total of 98 enemy towers on the city wall, all of which are built with garrisoned enemy towers.
The ancient city wall of Xi’an includes a series of military facilities such as moats, suspension bridges, gate towers, arrow towers, main towers, corner towers, enemy towers, parapets, and crenels, forming a strict and complete military defense system.
