Put this on your list. The tomb site is very peaceful and museum interesting. It's not the largest tourist attraction so crowds are smaller too. It's a nice contrast to the Terracotta Warriors.

The museum is new and the mini warriors are similarly amazing. There so much history buried here and they've only scratched the surface.

The Tomb of Emperor Jingdi is over 2,500 years old. You can tour the inside of the tomb seeing many artifacts there. Near by is the tomb of his wife and two of his children. On the way to the airport or coming from the airport it is convenient to see this site

Amazing example of the Han 4th Dynasty in which the Emperor replicated the Terracotta Warriors on a smaller, assembly-like scale. Make sure you get a behind-the-scenes laboratory tour in which you will see the pain-staking process of uncovering and assembling the artifaccts.

The Tomb of Emperor Jingdi is a located a ways outside of the city of Xi'an. It's a bit of a drive to get there and we went there after going to the Terracotta Warrior Museum the same day. Its a bit underwhelming to tell the truth, but, again, it is in Xi'an and we were trying to see as... More

The figurines are small but interesting: men, women, eunuchs! My favourites were the clay animals, very intricate and in impressive numbers. It was easy and cheap (2rmb) getting to the museum on number 4 bus from shitushuguan station on metro line 2 (exit D). It's very quiet there, virtually no tourists and you can walk in the ginkgo tree forest.... More

Definitely worth a trip if you have a an afternoon to spare. The burial pits are well lit and have accompanying information in Chinese, English and French. There's an enormous amount of pottery figures and ornaments on display, even if the range isn't that wide. It really gives you an insight into the wealth and power of the Han Dynasty.

A little less imposing than the Terra Cotta Warriors but still a great exhibition of how good it was to be Emperor of China. The museum is laid out in a darkened, tunnel like atmosphere which makes the findings all the more eerie.

we truly enjoyed this burial site. It's on the way to the airport so you can squeeze it in in the morning if you have a later flight (our flight was at 1 pm). unlike the terra cotta warriors, it was not crowded and we could get very close to the items in the burial sites. we also appreciated seeing...

This place receives maybe 100 times less visitors than the Chin emperor's terracotta army. Yet it's really worth a visit! Its a tiny little less ancient, but very similar concept of burying clay figurines of real people around the emperor. Here the figurine aren't as big, but more diverse. Museum is inside the tomb itself (underground). You walk right on... More
