China Report Abuse
Although an empire that started with the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang in 221 BC, China’s rich history dated back over 500.000 years ago to the time of the Peking Man. Even though she is not listed as the top ranking country with World heritage sites, with the number of sites that are on the “Tentative list”, she could easily surpass every country in the world with her rich cultural heritages. Some of her legacies are: • Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian • Mausoleum of the First Qin Emporer • Imperial Palaces of the Ming and Qing Dynasties in Beijing and Shenyang • The Great Wall • Temple and Cemetery of Confucius, and the Kong Family Mansion in Qufu • Historic Monuments of Macao
