The Tomb of Fan Zhongyan

The Tomb of Fan ZhongyanThe Tomb of Fan Zhongyan

Fan Zhongyan (989-1052) was a prominent statesman and literary figure from Suzhou of Jiangsu in the Northern Song Dynasty.

Fan Zhongyan was born into a poor family, but he was diligent in learning. When he was a xiucai (a person who passed the imperial examination at the county level in the Ming and Qing dynasties), he took the world as his own responsibility and was best known for being outspoken. He submitted reports to the authorities for a number of times, criticizing the Prime Minister in power. As a result, he was demoted for three times. Due to his outspoken character, he was among the advocates of "the Qingli Reforms", which ended in failure and led to his demotion. He died from illness on his way to Yingzhou and was given the posthumous name Wenzheng.

Fan Zhongyan's tomb is in the south of Wan'an Mountain in Xuying Village of Yichuan County's Pengpo Township, some 15 kilometers southeast of Luoyang City in Henan Province. The tomb is composed of the front and back areas, with the front area containing the tombs of Fan Zhongyan, his mother-Lady of the Qin State, and his eldest son Fan Chunyou, and the back area containing the tombs of his third and fourth sons named Fan Chunli and Fan Chuncui respectively, and some of his descendants.

Location: Xuying Village, Pengpo Township, Yichuan County, Luoyang.
