Yanliang District (simplified Chinese: 阎良区; traditional Chinese: 閻良區; pinyin: Yánliáng Qū) is one of nine districts of Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, China. The northernmost and least-populous[2] of Xi'an's county-level divisions, it borders the prefecture-level cities of Xianyang to the west and Weinan to the northeast and Lintong District to the south.

History[edit]

Yanliang District was the site of the Qin capital of Yueyang (simplified Chinese: 栎阳; traditional Chinese: 櫟陽).[citation needed]
