Wow! This is an incredible site. You will see an army but more is buried than is visible. They keep the warriors in the ground to protect the colors. You will see hundreds that... read more

We visited the Terra Cotta Warriors recently as part of a tour group. It is an amazing sight and what is being done to preserve and reconstruct the artifacts is amazing. The scope of the project is huge. It was interesting to be able to view workers actually reconstructing statues while we toured the site. It is a very long... More

I found this pretty useful, hopefully it will help someone else too. Straight from travel concierge: 1. Most reviews (over 98%) on Tripadvisor for Terracotta Wariors of Weishan were supposed to be comments for Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an but not Weishan, this is misleading, please be aware. 2. According to reviews and research in Chinese, Weishan is more like a... More

Wow! This is an incredible site. You will see an army but more is buried than is visible. They keep the warriors in the ground to protect the colors. You will see hundreds that are uncovered. This a wonder and beautiful.

If you get a chance to visit China, you must go and see the Terra Cotta Warriors. It will take your breath away. Every soldier and horse are different. The feat of putting these amazing soldiers, horse's, chariots back together is enormous. The whole experience has left me in awe.

A MUST SEE! I loved seeing the masterful created Terra Cotta Clay Warriors, Chariots, and Horses! They are still unearthing the warriors ...8,000 so far, some with some of the colored glaze on them. We purchased a Detailed Photo book signed copy from one of the farmers that found these soldiers.You watch a show that is worth seeing on the... More

What can you say that hasn’t been said about the Terra Cotta Army in Xian? It was absolutely amazing! The estimated 8,000 sculptures of men and horses were constructed by the first Emperor of China Qui Shi Huang in 210 AD and were buried with him for the purpose of protecting him in the afterlife. Each warrior was different from... More

TripAdvisor - needs some clarification here! The photographs supporting this entry - and most of the reviews - relate to the Xi'an Terra Cotta Warriors, where there is a large and well developed museum and infrastructure - including the regular presence of one of the 4 farmers who discovered the site, who will sign the guide book for you.

No local person knows of it. There is a recent discovery, but the "museum" is under construction. People probably write about the discovery in Xi'an. Only one bus line to go there (and not convenient), you just waste your time and nerves.

This attraction was very high on my bucket list. In fact it was 2nd behind the sights of Ancient Egypt. Well I am happy to say that this has now been ticked off and I was not the least bit disappointed. It is obvious that the Chinese Government and the People of China Laud and rate this historical site highly.... More
