Emissary Zhang Qian Commemorated as Pioneer of Silk Road

People perform on the ceremony in memory of Zhang Qian, in Chenggu county, Northwest China's Shaanxi province, April 3, 2018. Zhang Qian, a royal emissary in China's Han Dynasty (202 BC -220 AD), as pioneer of ancient Silk Road, traveled from China westward on a mission of peace and opened an overland route linking the East and the West, a daring undertaking which came to be known as Zhang Qian's journey to the Western regions.
