Below is an artist's impression of what the Emperor's main Palace of Apang at Xianyang would have looked like. It was completed in 212 BC and, according to the old records, it was 500 paces from east to west and 5000 feet from north to south - a very strange way of measuring it. The terraces could seat 10 000 people.
