This is an amazing cultural site and for us, was more interesting and engaging than the Terracotta Warriors. It provided a real insight into the times of the Han dynasty. The museum and site is well set up and being able to walk across the glass floor and see into the dig as you walked through the site was truly... More

Although not as popular as the Terracotta Warriors, this site is an amazing display of Chinese pottery, bronzeware, and other artifacts that were unearthed in similar burial mounds. The most amazing part is that the site is currently being excavated and the largest of the mounds which sits in the center of the site, has still not been touched. The... More

luckily this is located very near the airport so we left early on the day to leave Xi'an to visit this tomb and underground museum to see the excavation displays. as many other attractions are located in opposite side of Xi'an city, it's difficult to come this site in the same day you visit, say terracotta soldiers museum, etc.

The scale and detail of the holdings and museum set-up are very thoughtfully arranged. The tombs are kept intact and you view by walking over them on a plexiglass floor in the dark museum built over them.

An hour from the warriors but worth it. Tiny terracotta people and a total contrast to the bombast of the Warriors. Well designed if dark museum space.

We had vaguely heard about this tomb before we left the UK but it wasn't on our itinerary. We were so glad we didn't miss it though…it is a different experience to seeing the Terracotta Warriors but with a lot less people to contend with it was really worth it. The museum is beautifully laid out and one highlight is... More

As an archeological place in itself the place is a bit underwhelming after a visit to the terracotta army. China is a great power indeed but when it comes to animal/environmental protection an embarrasing dwarf. No place else in the developed world would it be be possible to sell ivory in the gift shop A complete disgrace

This is great museum to visit, not quite as majestic as the Terracotta Warriors Museum but certainly worth a visit. Visitors walked on glass panel to see the excavation site underneath. The artefacts are well preserve. It is underrated and not so famous as the Terracotta, but definitely a must visit for history buffs. Chang'an is after all the capital... More

Overall I found this site very structured. It is a magnificent and abundant cultural relic, comprising the emperor's tomb, empress' tomb, the south and north burial pits, ceremonial site, human sacrifice graveyard and criminals' cemetery. Neatly arranged and centered with the emperor's tomb, it revealed to me the strict hierarchical social structure that was in place. A must to see.
