This paper discusses conservation of historic districts based on the concept of cultural ecology. In this paper, we analyze the protection status of Xi’an Bei Yuan Men historic district in three fundamental characteristics of culture, mainly including territorial culture, non-renewable feature and continuity. It’s to propose a solution to coordinate contradiction between the protection of the cultural characteristics and meet the requirements of residents on social development. In this process, the paper argues that policy guidance has a very important role. It advocates that any social development should be based on the protection of the cultural ecology of the region.
