On April 5, 2019 a memorial ceremony for legendary emperor Huang Di will be held in North Qiaoshan, Huangling County, Yan'an City, Shaanxi Province.
At 09:30 (01:00 GMT) the ceremony will be jointly broadcast by People’s Daily English language APP and "Discover Shaanxi".
Huangdi, regarded as the ancestor of the Chinese nation, is the pioneer and founder of China’s civilization. Huangdi Mausoleum is the tomb of Xuanyuan Emperor (Huangdi) and it bears profound national sentiments of the Chinese people.
Rituals such as this have been held since the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD). Nowadays, during the Ching Ming Festival each year, Chinese people from home and abroad come here to commemorate Huangdi.
