Sorry for the blurry photo! It was the only one I found of our hotel’s front entrance. As the temperature there at night was below freezing temperatures, having hot pot as our dinner was ideal. Lamb and veal was the most popular there.
Xue Rengui (薛仁貴)
This was the statue of the famous general, Xue Rengui.
“Xue Rengui, formal name Xue Li but went by the courtesy name of Rengui, was a prominent general during the early Tang Dynasty. He is one of the most well-known military generals of his time due to his humble background, outstanding command abilities, strength and valour in battle.“—Wikipedia
