Luoyang is renowned as the city of peony. The city has long been famous for its beautiful peony flowers. Peony has been called the King of Flowers for its gorgeous charm and unbelievable beauty. The Flower is a symbol of prosperity and wealth in China. Ancient Chinese poets once compared peony with the beautiful and elegant ladies and thought the two were equally pleasant to the eye.
However, peony is only the tip of the iceberg. Luoyang is well known but because of its long history and profound culture. The city is the cradle of Chinese civilization where many Chinese legends happened, such as Nvwa Patching the Sky, Dayu Controlling Flood and the Chinese ancestor Huangdi Establishing the Nation. The city is also famed as the ‘Poets Capital’ as poets and literates of ancient China often gathered there and left grand works. Religious culture once thrived here. Taoism originated there and the first Buddhist temple set up by the government was located there. Luoyang is also the hometown of many of the scientific inventions of ancient China, such as the seismograph, armillary sphere, paper making, printing and the compass.
Luoyang is the capital of about 13 feudal dynasties in Ancient China. Today many scenic spots and historic sites have made Luoyang a tourist attraction and always appeal tourists all over the world. The most famous ones are The Longmen Grottos, White Horse Temple, Guanlin Temple, Museum of Ancient Tombs, and Luoyang Museum.
