Yecheng City is situated on the northern banks of the Zhanghe River, 13 kilometers southwest of Linzhang County, Hebei Province.

The city was once the capital of Cao Wei, the later Zhao, the Ran Wei, the former Yan, the Eastern Wei and the Northern Qi, after which it was abandoned. The site comprises the south and north cities.

According to historical records, the northern city was built in the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476BC), earlier than the southern city. In 204 of the Eastern Han (25-220), Emperor Cao Cao of the Wei State ordered the erection of three high platforms in the city: the Bronze Finch, Golden Tiger and Ice Well. During the later Zhao of the Six States Period (304-439), a large number of palaces were built inside the city, with carved-stone walls, gold columns, silver balusters, streams of pears used as shades and jade walls. Moreover, a five-storied pavilion was erected on the Bronze Finch Platform. To the north of the platform were nine grand palaces named the Nine Gorgeous Palaces. After the Northern Qi (550-577) was conquered in 577, the northern city was gradually discarded.

The southern city was built by Gao Huan of the Eastern Wei Dynasty (534-550) and expanded during the Northern Qi Dynasty. The city constructions were grand and gorgeous. It is believed the palace doors and windows were decorated with gold and silver, the buildings were made of jade instead of stone and sandal wood was used to build rafters and bracket sets embossed with rare birds and animals. Following the Sui Dynasty (581-618), the southern city was gradually abandoned.

Copper Bird Pavilion -- 铜(tóng) 雀(què) 台(tái)

The Copper Bird Pavilion is located in Santai Village, Linzhang County of Hebei Province. It is one of the three pavilions built by Cao Cao. In the fifteenth year of Jian'an Period of the Eastern Han Dynasty (210 A.D.) when the pavilion was completed, Cao Cao ordered his son Cao Pi to compose a "fu" in the pavilion. It is said that this is the right place where Cao Cao took the oath-taking rally before he launched the Battle of the Red Cliff. He threatened to capture the two beauties, the sisters of the Qiao Family, at the battle, but ended in fiasco.
