The province is scattered with breathtaking landmarks.

Located at a religious, cultural and intellectual crossroad along the Silk Route, this extraordinary site once attracted monks and nuns, artists, translators and calligraphers.

Key city landmarks include the White Pagoda, a hilltop temple overlooking the river; Waterwheel Garden, where you can view traditional waterwheels that once irrigated the surrounding farmland; and the Yellow River Mother Sculpture, which depicts a mother and baby in homage to the riverâ€™s nourishment of generations of Chinese people.
