If you have travelled to Xian to see the terracotta warriors then its worth the while to make a stop at Han yan ling to see how the warriors evolved over time and with the changes in dynasties. The warriors here are smaller and there are women, eunuchs and men to be found in the thousands lining the excavated pits.... More

A very interesting and well laid out museum, set in very attractive and well-maintained parkland. While the tomb of Emperor Jingdi is yet to be excavated, much work has been done on the surrounding land containing many clay figures, human and animal and other artifacts - almost a mini-terracotta army.The careful excavations have been covered by a glass walkway; I...

As others have commented, this tomb is between the airport and the city. It is interesting on a number of levels, not least the presentation, in which the visitor actually goes underground to walk through the tomb, either looking down through perspex or sideways into the excavated trenches. The light is kept at a very low level. The process of... More

This is a much smaller tomb that the Warriors, but it is well done. All the pits have been excavated, the teams returned and then covered with glass for you to walk over. In one area you are in the depths of the pit walking along side the relics. Very different than the Warriors, but equally interesting.

We enjoyed this trip but it was difficult to photograph some of the exhibits due to the lighting. Again it is amazing to see and try and understand how and why these were put here. They are preserving so much of the history it is hard to grasp the scale of things in the area.

gave up going to look at it as you had a very long walk before you got the mound of earth where the tomb is. After walking around the terra cotta army we gave this a miss.

I made the mistake of seeing this attraction after visiting the terra-cotta warriors, which is hard to live up to. I was on my own and took public transport up to see it, which may influence how I had been expecting a more worthwhile experience given the amount of travel involved. I'd only recommend coming here if you are headed... More

Our guide and driver met us at the Xian airport and we stopped at this attraction on our way into the city of Xian. Well worth a couple of hours. Not crowded. Several school groups including kids dressed in school uniforms with red scarves marking them as "Young Pioneers". As retired school teachers, this was an Interesting glimpse of Chinese... More
