Q:Theresa Asked on 7:27 PM Sep. 26 2011 Reply
Did the Chang'an of Tang Dynasty have a wall that enclosed more area than the present day wall. Were the Large and Small Wild Goose Pagodas within the original wall?

Hi Theresa, As the capital of Tang Dynasty, Chang'an owns the area of 83.1 square kilometers, which is more than today's. The Large and Small Wild Goose Pagodas are included in it. They are the symbols of Chang'an. Check out our websites to get more information about Chang'an (today's Xi'an) : http://www.chinahighlights.com/xian/ Have a nice day!
