LUOYANG World's Tenth Oldest City & the Oldest in Asia




 


Luoyang, China
 
While most old cities are located in the Mediterranean, Luoyang stands out as the oldest continually inhabited city in Asia. It is included to the Seven Great Ancient Capitals of China. The city is also considered to be geographical center of China and the cradle of Chinese culture and history. There is no other city in China that has lived out so many dynasties and emperors like Luoyang. The city has been inhabited for more than 4,000 years and nowadays it is populated by nearly 7,000,000 people.

With such a long and exciting history, Luoyang has really a lot to offer. The Longmen Grottoes, which was included to the list of World Heritage Sites in 2000, and numerous historic Buddhist temples are real attractions for tourists from all over the world. Luoyang is also famed for the White Horse Temple, the first temple established in China.
