An County 安县


An County is in Mianyang, the second largest prefecture level city in Sichuan Province. It covers an area of 1,404 square kilometres and has a population of 500,000.

After the earthquake other provinces and the government and people of the PRC as well as many foreigners and other countries willingly provided assistance.

Typical scenic views of the area are Cultural Square, the Wetland Park, Taiping Bridge, Twin Sisters Bridge, and Xiaoba Town.

Wetland Park and the Twin Sisters Bridge were built with the assistance of Liaoning Province during the reconstruction period. The bridge is very decorative and also has a very practical and important function; it has a sluice system, similar to that in London in the UK, to control the flow of the river.
