Yinxu - a beautiful village surrounded by sunflowers

Yinxu, the birthplace of Chinese characters, is currently home to the earliest recorded ancient Chinese characters. Anyang was once the ancient capital of the Shang Dynasty and is known for its good feng shui as the city is built along the Huán River. Ancient civilizations have a close relationship with rivers, as wherever there are rivers, there is civilization. The reason the author mentioned Yinxu is because the sunflower field is located near the Yinxu Archaeological Site.

The Yin Xu Museum is located in the center of Yin Xu, with the aim of protecting and showcasing various archaeological sites, relics, and cultural landscapes in the palace area of Yin Xu in Anyang, Henan Province. It includes a reconstructed hall (Oracle Bone Script Exhibition Hall), pavilion, and other architectural replicas of the Yin Dynasty palace, as well as other archaeological sites, relics, and exhibits. It fully reflects the cultural landscape of the palaces of the Shang Dynasty and the splendid ancient civilization of China.

Sunflower field

The sunflower field is not far from the Yin Ruins. When you walk to the main gate of the Yin Ruins Museum, there is a hardened road next to it. Walking west along the road, passing by the "archaeological station", a large area of farmland is densely planted with sunflowers. It is suitable for taking large photos.
