Starbucks City Mug Mianyang - Yuewang Tower

Mianyang is the second largest prefecture-level city of Sichuan province in Southwest China with population of 4,6 million inhabitants. Mianyang, called Fuxian in ancient times, had advanced in agriculture during the Qin and Han dynasties. It has a history of over 2,200 years since the Emperor Gaozu of Han established the first county in this area in 201 BCE. Due to its advantageous location, it had always been a town of great military importance and formed a natural defence for Chengdu. Mianyang is home to the CAEP and Science City, an immense Military Research Complex which was the site of the development of China first nuclear bomb. The city proper itself was only lightly damaged by the earthquake of 12 May 2008.

Yuewang Tower - Yuewang Tower is located in Mianyang city, Sichuan Province. The tower was first built in the Emperor Gaozong of Tang Dynasty; it got its name from the local governor Li Zhen, the eighth some of Emperor Taizong.
