Overview

Tangshan was laid in ruins by the massive earthquake in 1976, being a devastating natural disaster of this century. But it was reconstructed into a very modern city during some 10 years by the stricken People.
Tangshan has 600-year long history of porcelain production, the famous kinds being bone china, bailan porcelain, white Jade porcelain and magnolia porcelain.

Not far from the city lie the Eastern Imperial Tombs of the Qing Dynasty. The buildings in front of the tombs are very magnificent with red walls, golden roofs and marble bridges. Altogether 5 emperors, 15 empresses and l36 concubines were buried here. Several tombs were excavated and have been open to visitors.
