Dali City is a county-level city in Dali Prefecture, Yunnan province, China. Dali is the ancient capital of both the Bai kingdom Nanzhao, which flourished in the area during the 8th and 9th centuries, and the Kingdom of Dali, which reigned from 937-1253. Dali was also the center of the Panthay Rebellion from 1856-1863. The `new city` is known as Xiaguan and is south of the old city. The old city was built during Ming Dynasty emperor Hongwu`s reign (1368-1398). We visited both the new and the old city, as well as the Three Pagodas, the Chong Sheng Temple, Butterfly Spring Garden and Erhai Lake.
