The capital of Shanxi province, Taiyuan is a modern metropolis that lies on the banks of the Fen River. Despite being a centre of industry and awash with skyscrapers, Taiyuan holds some ancient treasures that are well worth exploring. Discover the beauty and symmetry of the Twin Pagodas, and the ancient majesty of the Jinci Temple, located just south of the city.


The bustling city of Taiyuan is often overlooked, being the gateway to Mount Wutai and the ancient town of Pingyao. But spend a little time in this vast industrial capital and you’ll uncover the secrets of its ancient past. Pagodas, temples and a superb museum provide a glimpse into the history of Taiyuan, and the prominent Catholic cathedral is a nod to the forward- thinking and prosperous city of today.
